Taleb is a 48-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and four children. Because of heavy living expenses, Taleb was obliged to work hard in order to cover their needs and pay his children’s university fees. He has three children who are still studying and one other working. Taleb has many years of experience in the agriculture field. He decided to buy his own land in 2009 where he cultivates all kinds of fruits and vegetables. Today, he needs to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children’s educational fees. This will certainly encourage them to finish their education and achieve higher positions in the near future. In the coming years, he plans to open his own fruits and vegetables shop to better support his children.
