Abed Al Wahab's story

Abdel Wahab is a 37-year-old married father of two children. He has been in the catering business for 17 years and is currently employed in a snack shop. The shop is unique in the area with regards to its offerings of Lebanese specialties such as Falafel, Ful and Hommus. Abdel Wahab is applying for a loan from Kiva’s Partner, Al Majmoua, to buy the required products, such as spices, meat, chicken, fish, oil and bread, and boost the snack’s service-capacity.

In the future, Abdel Wahab intends to buy the snack shop from its owner. In this way, he will be a business owner with a stable job. This is why he is keen on investing as much as possible in the store's growth. Generating more revenues will allow Abdel Wahab to earn more and thus become capable of fulfilling his household and family needs as well as accumulate income for his future plan.
