Zahi, 38, is Lebanese and married to Zeinab, a lovely wife and the mother of his five children. She’s a great support to him, and even though they both work, they struggle to cover the usual family expenses without forgetting their children’s study fees.

For the past five years, Zeinab has been cultivating pomegranates on a plot of land, while for many years Zahi has owned a farm where he raises cattle for dairy products. A very good manager, he has also worked at a chicken farm for ten years.

Because he wants to develop his business, Zahi is requesting a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional cattle for his farm. In his opinion, this step will allow him to increase his productivity, thus leading to increased earnings and an improved standard of living. He also hopes to open a small shop where he can sell his dairy products, which are of very high quality..
