Malek is a 31-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife, the mother of his only child who is still studying. Like every couple, Malek and his wife wish to offer their child a respectable life, far from problems and difficulties. For this reason, they combine forces to be able to afford heavy life expenses. Malek opened his own butcher shop in 2010. He’s a reputable person who always strives to deliver good and fresh products for his customers. Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy added cattle for his business. In that way, he will be able to develop his business and augment his sales. In the future, he plans to raise cattle and start his own dairy products trading business as a parallel job.
