Marwan is a 44-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children, who are still attending school. He’s a painter and has almost 20 years of experience in this occupation, which has made him well known among people. Marwan is the only source of income for his family, so he works hard to earn higher returns. Marwan is planning to purchase new painting equipment as he wishes to enlarge his business. In this way, he will be able to start new projects on time. This is why he requests a loan from Kiva's partner Vitas s.a.l. today. He’s definitely sure that this step will push him to take on more and bigger projects in the near future and therefore achieve his goals.
