Joseph is a 35-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife and two school-aged children. He opened his own barbershop in 2003. His wife works as a female hairdresser and they both cooperate together to cover the family expenses--especially their children's educationA. fees.

Today, he's asking to borrow a loan of $2500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase more supplies. He will also use the loan to rent a new salon in order to expand his business. He notes that these improvements will remarkably increase the family's revenues.
