Mounir is a 43-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three children.

In 1990, Mounir started his own business as a fisherman. It was a hobby that turned into a profession, which can return on him with higher revenue. In parallel, he works as a farmer; his job consists of cultivating vegetables. He takes good care of the land and always seeks to diversify the harvests to be able to satisfy his clients' needs.

Today, he is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new, bigger fishing nets. He states that the loan will help him increase his business productivity by a fair percentage, which will certainly enhance his way of living. In the future, he plans to open his own fishery.
