Jihad's story

Jihad is a 29-year-old married father of two children. He has been working as a barber for the past 18 years. In 2005, he opened his own shop in Nabatieh to improve his standard of living and increase his income. Jihad is a hard worker. He seeks perfection in everything, especially in raising his children and providing them the best education.

Jihad is smart and talented. He was only 11 years old when he started working, to help his parents financially. Education is very important to him, especially since he wasn't able to finish his education. He only finished his elementary studies.

Jihad is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to open a new branch in Tyre, which will increase his income and attract new customers from other nearby regions. This is Jihad's second loan from Al Majmoua; he has a good history of repaying loans. He works hard to expand his business and support his family.
