Rawad is a 26-year-old Lebanese man. After getting married, he moved to live with his wife and school-aged child. He’s trying the best he can to enhance his family’s way of life. For that reason, Rawad opened his own flower shop in 2005. He has a wide variety of flowers and wedding decorations.

Today, he needs to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy the needed quantity of flowers for his shop and other decoration items. This will certainly increase the number of customers asking for his service. In the future, he plans to enlarge his shop by adding diverse kinds of flowers.
