Nader is 38 years old. He lives in Lebanon with his family that is composed from his wife Itaf and their small child. Nader is obliged to work continually as he is responsible for covering his family expenses. He works from his house, where he sells musical instruments. He has been involved in this occupation since 2002.

As he becames an expert in these instruments, he will be able to respond rapidly to his clients' demands. In order to better support his family, Nader works in parallel at a local company. He suffers from a bad financial situation; that’s the reason why he’s asking today for a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to improve his business by purchasing new musical instruments. He confirms that the loan will help him raise his income by 25%. One of his greatest dreams is to satisfy all the needs of his child.
