Rabih is a 45-year-old married man from Lebanon, the father of two children. He is a school bus driver known for his patience and cautiousness in treating the students.

He has a big responsibility in his business, since he is dealing with a lot of family's children and he has to make sure that everything is going fine with his bus and his health at the same time, because most parents rely on him for their children's safety.

Rabih is optimistic and he works hard to meet his children's needs.

He is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to pay for his children's school fees and stationery, in addition to buying diesel (heating) necessary for his family to warm up in the coming autumn-winter season, in additon to the necessary and mouneh (stored food to be consumed during the rough winter season).

This is his second loan as Al Majmoua borrower, with a good standing repayment history.

Rabih is planning to buy another bus to expand his working zone, and increase his income.
