Abir's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for renovations and materials in her studio gallery.

Abir's story

Abir has been painting since she was 10 years old. She does not remember a ‎time she has not studied techniques and worked on mastering her skills. After ‎completing high school, Abir studied art education in order to be able to teach ‎others how to paint. Abir opened a home-based studio and gallery where she ‎gives art lessons and shows her work. Abir provides lessons, workshops and ‎even summer art camps for children.‎

Abir needed this loan to help develop her studio. She's moved the gallery to a ‎more central location which is more convenient for her students. She used the ‎loan for renovations and materials.‎

Abir participates in art showing throughout the Middle East and has sold pieces ‎in these showings. She is working towards her Bachelors in Education and ‎wants to develop her studio and one day teach art, sketching and painting to ‎students of all ages.‎
