Taleb is a 26-year-old married man living with his wife. He has been working as a furniture painter since 2000. He is very talented at his job and completes his tasks efficiently. He was obliged to start to work at a young age in order to enhance his way of living. Today, Taleb is requesting to borrow a youth loan from Kiva's partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase required materials and painting supplies. He states that the loan will certainly help him extend his trade and increase his income by a large percentage. In the future, he plans to borrow more Kiva loans to develop his work even more.
