Awad is a 45-year-old married man and father of five children. Awad is a hard worker; he built a small cottage years ago to provide his family with their daily food for their living. Awad makes and sells specially made noodles, lupines, and corn. This kind of food is highly attractive to children in his region, especially during the evening and while celebrating holy occasions.

Awad has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase his food business by buying a large quantity of noodles at a discount. Awad also works in construction, specializing in cement work. Since this business is not going well, Awad is hoping to improve it also by buying new construction tools.

His food business is his main source of income. Through its income he covers his family's necessities. He hopes to provide his family with the best education and living, and hopes to improve his both of businesses as much as he can.
