This Kiva borrower is a 34-year-old engaged man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and one sibling. He has been working as a building painter for 16 years sticking with multiple construction projects. In 2006, he decided to continue his operation on a freelance basis depending on customers’ demand. From time to time, he employs part-time workers to help him achieve the tasks.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional tools and equipment. He is very optimistic and willing to increase his profit so he can save money for his wedding. In the future, he hopes to expand his business operation, open his own painting shop, and hire full-time employees.
