A loan of $2,000 helped to pay for his childrens' increasing school tuition fees.


Rabih's story

Rabih is a 31-year-old married father of two children, for whom he sacrifices his whole life for their living and providing them with the best education ever. Rabih has been working as a barber for fifteen years, since he had to start work early to financially support his family when they were in need. In 2008, he established his current barber shop, and his career is developing all the time; he is becoming more talented, and his customers are increasing. At the same time his family's living needs are increasing too, but his income isn't increasing enough to cover any sudden increased request. For this reason, he is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to pay for his childrens' increasing school tuition fees. He is willing in the future to improve his shop's decoration to keep it attractive to his customers, and he might buy a car and set it for rental services as an additional income business.
