Halim's story

Halim is 46 years old and lives in Aley, Mount Lebanon, with his wife and five children. Halim has been selling perfumes, deodorant, make-up, shampoo and hair coloring for more than ten years. His customers are people from his region. He decided to set up this business in order to have independent work. Before opening his shop, he worked as a home painter, but from an early age he always wanted to have a shop of his own. Therefore, ten years ago, he took the decision to stop working as a home painter and open his shop. While he still sometimes works as a home painter in his free time, he only does so as a favor to his friends and family. When he first started his business, he had some financial issues as he faced competition.

Halim has requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase merchandise for his shop. This is his second loan and he has always paid on time. In the future, he plans to continue to improve his work.
