Riad is a 23-year-old entrepreneur from Lebanon. He is a single man who lives with his parents. Riad is a dedicated construction worker who works on very small projects. In order to improve his business, he has requested a loan from Al Majmoua, a Kiva partner, to buy scaffolding and tools for his work so that he can take on larger projects and therefore better support his family.

When he first started his business, he had some financial issues with buying the needed tools, but thanks to his previous loans, he was able to supplement his tools and prove himself. Therefore, this is the third loan he has requested from Al Majmoua. For the future, he plans on opening a stone-cutting plant.
