Kiad is 41 years old and the father of three. He is from Bir Almaksor. Kiad has worked for years as a truck driver, transporting stock and supplies throughout the country. He decided he wanted to secure a decent income for his family and last year he invested in a street cleaning business and purchased a street-cleaning truck. Since then, the municipality has hired him as a street cleaning contractor for ten cleanings a month, which promises a strong income. He is assured a strong start to his business. Kiad continues to work as a truck drives but is working to acquire additional contracts from other cities and villages.

Kiad is requesting a loan to complete his truck payments and begin his business. He hopes one day to be working fulltime in his own street cleaning business.
