A loan of $1,000 helped to perform necessary maintenance on his house.


Nahed's story

Nahed is a 39-year-old, married father of two children. To make his living, he works in vehicle repairs, specializing in body work. His wife doesn’t work and his children are enrolled in a private school, which forces him to put so much effort to develop his business, to make sure that it will develop to cover his family’s increasing requirements.

Nahed is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, in order to perform necessary maintenance on his house. He can’t afford to pay for this external need from his business since his income barely covers his family’s required needs, and not more. He has to fix the ceiling from the winter’s leakage, to keep his house a healthy living environment for his beloved family.

This is Nahed's fifth loan cycle as an Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development borrower. He has a good-standing history of paying back his loans. His previous loans helped him a lot in developing his business and in covering his family’s needs. They made a positive push forward, according to his socioeconomic situation.
