A loan of $2,125 helped to cover his tuition fees to study culinary arts, which he considers the essential step toward achieving his dream and fulfilling his ambition.


Fahmi's story

Fahmi is a 25-year-old single young man. His family consists of 16 members living in the Al-Kraymeh area, which is considered a poverty pocket area.

Fahmi started his career early, as his family’s poor conditions forced him to drop out of school and start working to support them. He worked as an intern chef for 3 months in one of the most famous hotels, without obtaining any vocational certificates, and as a chef for 2 years in a company, before working for the Amman airport.

While dreaming of becoming an executive chef for a famous restaurant in Europe, Fahmi realized that his experience is not enough for him to achieve this dream. So he decided to get a diploma in culinary arts in one of the most popular collages in Amman.

Fahmi applied for a JOD 1,500 loan at Kiva field partner Microfund for Women, to cover his tuition fees to study culinary arts, which he considers the essential step toward achieving his dream and fulfilling his ambition.
