Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Nadim's story

Nadim is a 36-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon, with his wife and their three children. Nadim has owned a restaurant since 1982. He makes all type of sandwiches, as well as mankoucheh (which looks like a folded pizza). The most common toppings are zaatar (thyme), jebneh (cheese) and lahm bi ajin (minced meat). You can eat it anytime of the day, but somehow it tastes better in the morning. Mouhamad is special in his work because he is known for his good and tasty mankoucheh. He does chicken, meat, escalope and all type of other sandwiches. When he first started his business, he passed through some financial difficulty. Nadim is special in his work because he knows how to meet his clients' demands; he is known for making the sandwiches on demand. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase raw material for his restaurant. This is the first time that Nadim has requested a loan. His clients are his friends, neighbors and people from his region. In the future, he plans to keep on improving his work.
