Hicham is a 35-year-old single man, who used to live in France and came back to Lebanon in 2009 to open his own winery in his village. He is an ambitious man, who loves his country and works hard to be productive to benefit his environment as a whole.

Hicham loves his business a lot; that's why he applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy a quality testing machine necessary for his production. This machine is very important in his business to make sure his product is of top quality. Hicham aims to start marketing his product all over the region, and he hopes for a big increase in his production and sales as soon as hoped for. He hopes to open a larger winery in the future to expand his production.
