Khalil is a 53-year-old Lebanese married man, living with his wife and four children. One child is working and three are still attending school. Because of the heavy life expenses and his children’s educational costs, Khalil was obliged to work hard to cover their needs. Despite all that, he was thankful to have such a united and lovely family.

He has twenty-five years experience in the field of agriculture until he opened his own agricultural products shop. Today, he’s asking to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen S.A.L. to pay his children’s university fees and expenses until graduation. In the future, he plans to open another business where his children can work on his behalf.
