Faten is a 33-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married, living with his wife and only one child who is still studying. In order to pay his child’s educational fees and cover the heavy costs of life, he decided to open his own cattle farm in 2001 after being involved in this domain for the past fifteen years. Today, he wants to borrow $2600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a pick up for his farm. In that way, he will be capable to deliver milk to the neighbor areas. In the future, he plans to open his own home made products shop
