Fadi is a 36-year-old married man, a father of one child. He has been working in house painting for thirteen years. Fadi is a Palestinian refugee living in a Palestinian Camp. Because he is skilled in his business, and highly talented since he puts so much effort into knowing all the new methods in painting and construction in addition to decoration, he has customers from outside the Camp who recommend him to others which increases his income.

Fadi is applying for his fourth loan cycle from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a special machine used for decoration work and to renew his business tools. This is done in order to keep his business ready for any request from customers.

Fadi loves his business a lot, and works hard to keep updating it because this is the only way he can please his customers and develop his social and financial living standards.

He hopes to keep on expanding his business as much as he can to ensure his family have a good and peaceful life.
