Fadi is a 39-year-old married man and father of four children. He has 18 years of experience in grocery sales, mainly potato and onions. Fadi is famous in his neighborhood for the quality of the vegetables he sells, as well as his honesty with the customers.

Fadi is applying for his first loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua. He will use the money to buy a large amount of potatoes and onions to accommodate the increasing demand from his customers. Fadi hopes that he can expand his sales and increase his business revenues in order to support his family and provide them a respectful standard of living.
