Rawad is a 32-year-old married man employed in a vehicle-repairing garage that specializes in body work. He has been doing this work for 12 years. His wife doesn't work and she is expecting their first baby soon. That is an additional expense he has to face and make to sure that he has the ability to provide his small family with the best possible healthy living conditions.
His low salary isn't enough for him to save money for emergency needs. That's why he is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to pay his wife's hospital costs and the expected baby needs.
He hopes one day he can afford to open his own vehicle-repairing garage and improve his socioeconomic situation.
