Mahdi is a 31-year-old, married Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and their one school-age child. He has numerous responsibilities, especially covering his child’s education fees.

In 1995, he started his own upholstery business. He is now looking to target and attract more clients.

Currently, he is seeking to borrow a loan in the amount of $2,600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase more textiles in order to be able to carry on and improve his business activities, which he feels will increase his profits by 15%. In the future, he plans to open his own furniture gallery.
