Issa is a 52-year-old married father of ten children. He has worked in an agricultural business since 1990 to make his living and cover his family’s expenses, since he is their sole breadwinner.

Issa works in a rented plot of land with seven male employees who help him to plant and harvest it and sell what they produce. He is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to rent an agricultural plot of land to increase his production.
