Tarek is a 21-year-old single man. He is employed in a company where, for the last three years, he has been responsible for finishing all the required legal government documents. He used to work as a chef, but the country's security situation made any work based on tourism very hard to develop, and that's why he turned to an administrative job. Tarek is responsible for supporting his three other family members, so he has to work hard to increase his income in order to cover their expenses.

He is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to undergo a necessary operation.
