This Kiva borrower is a 62-year-old widowed man from Lebanon. He lives on his own. He worked in a roastery for more than 42 years. Then, he decided to open his own roastery 5 years ago and started to offer people from his community delicious nuts and crackers. This competent older man was able to cover his expenses all across the years. He obtained his first Kiva loan and he was a very good client.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new machinery and additional tools to increase his productivity, sales, and income.
