Abbas is a 46-year-old married man living with his wife and five children, some of whom are still attending school.

He has been involved in the construction field for more than 25 years. In 1992, he decided to start his own work, sticking with multiple projects. He is talented at completing gypsum work and is well known for his original designs and decorations.

Today, he is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to purchase new tools instead of the used ones to achieve his work competently and to be able to present good quality services to the clients. He works on a freelance basis, and he hopes to become the owner of his own shop in the near future.
