Zahi is a 34-year-old single man from Lebanon. He has worked in a gypsum board decoration business for twenty years. He started working when he was only 14 in order to make his own living. He was able to get only his intermediate studies.

He is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary requested tools for his business. His clients are his neighbors, relatives and friends. They all agree on his talent in his work, his perfection and honesty.

This is his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. His first loan helped him a lot in improving his social and financial situations. Zahi is working hard to improve his living for a better business and for future social living. He hopes to expand his business as much as he can and to hire someone to help him reply to extra requests that he isn't capable of doing at the moment.
