Nabih is a 26-year old entrepreneur from Lebanon. He is single. He has been working for the past three years selling car accessories and hookas (an oriental tobacco pipe with a long, flexible tube that draws the smoke through water contained in a bowl). This has given him wide experience in this industry. His customers include neighbors, friends and other community members. Nabih says that he is very passionate about his work and that he could not imagine a life without it.

He is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. This will be his third loan from Al Majmoua; his previous loans had a big positive effect on his social and financial situation, and he is a borrower of good standing. He plans to use the loan to buy a bobcat for lifting heavy products and accessories from one place to another and he might also rent it to constructors.
