Mazen is a 35 years old and single, living with his parents and three siblings. Despite his age, Mazen is obliged to work continually as he is responsible for covering the family expenses. His youngest sibling is also working in addition to the others, in order to supplement the family's income.

As for Mazen, he owns a restaurant where he provides his customers with delicious food, especially the “Lebanese Mezza," one of the Lebanese traditions and foods that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Regardless of being satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial situation. That’s why he’s asking today for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to improve his business by buying additional food provisions, such as meat, chicken, and hummus. In the near future, Mazen requires hiring new employees to help him achieve the work tasks.
