Dergham is a 38-year-old married father of three children who has worked in agriculture for fourteen years. He has a small farm in Lebanon where he raises livestock that are his only source of a living. He is a hard worker and well known in his region with a special reputation for the quality of products he provides.
He is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for his mother’s funeral expenses that weren’t expected, and he wasn’t saving extra money for unexpected occasions. Dergham is his family’s sole breadwinner, and that’s why he has to work hard on developing his business to make sure that it will cover his family’s needs and expectations.
EMI proudly supported Dergham’s family and business with a $50 loan in February 2014.
