Imad is a 29-year-old married man, and father of one child. He has been working in the agriculture business since 2008. His business is doing just fine depending on the market's needs, but his family's requests are increasing. To cover their needs, Imad and his wife considered applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to start a small business for his wife. She likes to sell beauty cosmetics at her house, because she has a lot of friends, neighbors and relatives who are interested in such products.

He is very optimistic about this step because he believes in his wife's skills and customer service. He hopes that the future loan will be invested in opening a shop for his wife instead of working from home.
