Jassem is a 31-year-old Lebanese man who lives with his wife and only child. He’s the only one responsible for his family and he seeks to offer them a better future. He opened a fish shop twelve years ago, and he’s satisfied with the results he has attained so far. Today, he’s requesting a loan of $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the necessary quantity of fish for his shop. He notes that this will allow him to serve a wider range of people and increase his revenues. In the future, he plans to open his own seafood restaurant.
