Charbel has worked as an electrician for the past 15 years. He works on a freelance basis serving homes and shops upon request of his clients. He is well known in his town and the neighboring villages. He is 30 years old, single, and his family's sole provider. Today, Charbel has found an opportunity to expand his business into other areas and take on more projects. To do so, he's asking for a loan of $1,200 to buy new tools instead of the used ones he has now.
