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.
