Sadik's story

Sadik is a 48-year-old, married man who lives with his wife and is a father of a son who is 13 years old. Since 2002 he has owned a small fast food restaurant. From his business he generates enough money to take care of his family and support financially his son at school, but not enough to save money and invest in his business, and it has been many years since he has renovated its furniture and the equipment in the kitchen of the business.

He wants to offer better services to his clients. He has applied for a loan to purchase new inventory for his fast food business and new equipment so he can have more clients and increase his income. He also wants to hire interns to help his in his work. He is very pleased that he is being able to work and has the full support of his family.

He is grateful once again for the help from all Kiva lenders!
