Tarek is a 43-year-old married man, father of two children. He has been working in providing electricity to his villagers since 1992. This kind of business is essential in his region, and all over Lebanon, because it's a big problem that has no solution at the present time.

Tarek is working on improving and changing his power cables and network to keep his customers pleased with the service he provides, that's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy new cables and renew his network.

Tarek is hoping to expand his working region through buying more power generators in the future to start providing electricity to neighboring villages at competitive prices. He hopes to keep on providing his family the best living ever, in addition to higher education.

Tarek was an employee until two years ago in 2010, when he decided to buy the generator from his boss and start his own business to improve his family's standard of living.
