Rabih is a 27-year-old single man who works in the construction business and specializes in decoration work (Gibson boards). Rabih is one of the Syrians who came to work in Lebanon in order to improve their living because of the lack of working opportunities available.

Rabih is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to renew his working tools because it is very necessary to keep them in very good condition to make sure that his work is accurate and perfectly done.

This is his first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower, and he hopes that the future experiences will be invested in increasing his tools and expanding his working zone through recruiting someone to help him reply to extra projects in the future.
