Hicham is a 49-year-old married man and the father of one child. He has worked in a food business for a long time. He has a special soybean and hummus restaurant, which is a traditional Lebanese breakfast requested by almost everyone on a special Sunday morning.

Hicham is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new refrigerator, a hummus mill, and to print the restaurant's name on both tissue papers and plastic bags. This is Hicham's first cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, and he hopes that it will bring him good luck through indirect marketing and good taste. He hopes to open another branch in the future.
