Jihad D. is 33 years old and lives with his wife and six children in the town of Tyr in south Lebanon. Jihad is an animal farmer. He owns cows and sells their milk, while his wife makes dairy products like labneh, a type of yogurt that the people of Lebanon love to eat for breakfast with Arabic bread. Because expenses are high and income low in this line of work, Jihad believes that he must find another source of income to guarantee a better life for his family. That is why he has applied for a loan of $1,200, his first from Al Majmoua, to buy a herd of sheep.
