A loan of $1,500 helped to buy tools necessary for his business.

Rabih's story

Rabih, a 42-year-old married father of two children, has worked as a carpenter specializing in furniture-making for the past 16 years. Rabih was a weekly employee until he decided to start his own business. He bought his machines gradually, because he didn't have enough money to buy them all at once.

Rabih is a hard worker who puts so much effort into improving his business to improve his family's living conditions and move from the Palestinian area they are living in. He is working hard to educate his children to see them become significant people in the future, and he hopes that the Palestinian's situation will get better in Lebanon so they will be capable of choosing their own working sector like other persons.

Rabih is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy new tools that will enable him to bring a high quality to requested projects in a short period of time. This will lead to increased net profits that will allow him to elevate his family's social and financial standing. Rabih hopes to expand his working zone and hire employees to cover a wider area, thereby enhancing his furniture-making reputation.

Rabih hopes to buy a house of his own and open a supermarket in the future.
