A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase the equipment he needs to open a workshop of his own.


Elie's story

Elie is a 28-year-old single man and the sole earner out of six in his family. Elie has been refinishing furniture for 11 years, and his bosses often remark on his reliability and excellent quality of work. He has a steady income, but it is just enough to cover all the increasing demands of his family.

Elie is an ambitious man who believes in taking advantage of every opportunity in life. He acquired a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua in order to purchase the equipment he needs to open a workshop of his own. Elie has the experience and vision to succeed, and he looks forward to opening up his shop soon.
