Antoine is a 62-year-old married man, father of three children. He has worked as a blacksmith since 2000, and this long experience provided him with a very good reputation in the region. He also works as a math teacher to cover his family's expenses. Antoine is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for the first time, in order to buy a power generator that is very important for his business development, since electricity is a major problem in Lebanon with no clue that it will be solved soon.

Antoine is working hard on expanding his business as much as he can to keep on providing his family the necessary living needs.
