Hatem is a 45-year-old married man living with his wife and five children; one of them is working. He’s looking to support his family the best he possibly can. That’s why he started to work in the construction field since 1987. He’s specialized in floor covering and building decoration using stones. Today, he’s looking to borrow a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a generator for his business. He notes that this will develop his business and it will return higher earnings. In the future, he plans to expand his business and take on bigger projects.
