A loan of $1,500 helped to help his son with his engagement ceremony expenses.


Abed Al Salam's story

Abed Al Salam is a 50-year-old, married father of four children, who has had a hookah-selling shop since 2009. He is well-known in his region, with his special quality and prices provided to his customers. His wife is employed in a school, but their combined revenue isn't enough to cover all of their family's needs because of the high cost of living these days. Abed Al Salam works hard for his family's happiness. He is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to help his son with his engagement ceremony expenses, as his gift, since he can't afford taking this amount directly from his business capital. He hopes to keep on responding to his family's needs and expanding his business.
