Ibraheem's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Ibraheem's story

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. We are an immigrant family from the Middle East.  My wife and I came to the United States back in 2006 as an International students. We promised to worked hard and finished our higher educations no matter what obstacles we would face. We did it and we graduated from Western Michigan University where I earned my Bachelor and Master degree in Mechanical Engineering,  and My wife earned her bachelor degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Food and Consumer Goods Package Marketing. During those difficult years, we have been thru a lot of live changing events which made us a very strong family that adapt to many difficult situations.  We have been blessed with 3 children while finishing our higher education in Michigan.  One of the biggest challenges was keeping our live balance between our children, school, and work.   A new challenge and stage in our live just begun as we moved to Kansas City where I started my engineering career.  In the same time we started planning our own business. My wife earned her MBA degree. After four years living in Kansas City and missing our culture from the Middle East and the lack of authentic Middle Eastern food in the Kansas City area We got the idea of opening a restaurant that serve a high quality, authentic Middle Easter food that is delicious, affordable, and served fast. All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. Our dream came true in 2018, and since that we always keep  improving our operation by studying the market and adapting to all the new trends the the markets needs.  We are ready for the next phase and need some financial assistant to do that. We have a dream to be a big brand in the fast food industry.  We see our dream in front of us and we are confident that this dream will come true very soon. With the support of the Kiva  Community we can achieve this dream.
