Tarek is a 38-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to Sanaa, a beautiful young woman. They have only two small kids. Tarek cares for his family and seeks to offer them a respectable life. He works nonstop, on his own, to be able to cover their expenses. He has been working as a plumber since 1998. He also fixes heaters upon client’s demands. He is very honest with his customers which is what makes them loyal to him.
Today, he is asking for a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to replace his plumbing tools. This is his second Kiva loan, and like the first one, it will facilitate his business operations and allow him to start his new project properly. This is how Tarek works to collect higher revenues and offers his family a very comfortable life away from working hard.
