Taysir is a 40-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three children. He is the main income provider of the family and works very hard to be able to handle their expenses. He has been working in the construction field for the past 19 years. He specializes in painting, installing drywall, and completing aluminum work. He is well known in his town and has gained a fair number of clients so far. Today, he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase an electrical generator for his business, in addition to some aluminum supplies. This will allow him to do his work competently and present good quality services to his clients. He works on a freelance basis and hopes to take on bigger projects and increase his earnings in the near future.
