Sleiman is a 45-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two school-age children. He’s working really hard to be able to cover his family needs as he is their main source of income.

Sleiman decided to start his own business in 1993, so he opened a bakery shop in his town where he’s well known for his delicious food and good atmosphere.

Today he’s asking to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to expand and renovate his bakery in order to attract more customers and earn more money. In the future, he plans to open a small playground for kids.
