Abbas is a 26-year-old married man from Lebanon living with his wife.

He started his own business working as a floor covering laborer almost three years ago. He has nine years of experience working in the same occupation. His story illustrates the day-to-day challenges many people are facing in trying to help their families with their business income.

Despite his situation, he feels positive about his business potential for the coming year.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy a paving cutter machine and renew his business tools. In the future, he hopes to start working directly with multiple construction entrepreneurs.
