Talal is a 33-year-old Lebanese married man who is trying his best to build a good future for his family, especially the children he hopes for. Since 2006 he has been working in construction on a freelance basis and specializing in floor cleaning. He also works as a plumber when needed. He’s sure that the more projects he takes on, the higher his revenues will be.

Today, he’s requesting a 1,500,000 LBP loan from Kiva’s partner Ameen s.a.l to buy additional cleaning equipment and plumbing supplies for his business. This will help him work better and more professionally.

In the future he plans to take out more loans and open his own construction equipment shop.
