Ibrahim Atallah Kreishan
Ibrahim Atallah Kreishan is the father of ten children. He retired from the military after suffering a leg injury and has since struggled to support his family by dividing his time between a small grocery store in Marka and crafting military rank insignia. Although Ibrahim is ambitious and hard-working, these combined occupations could not produce enough income to provide for his family's basic needs. But, Ibrahim couldn't help but keep his dream alive - to give his children a better standard of living and the opportunities that come with a good education, proper healthcare and an improved social status. His relentless efforts to establish a small, income-generating project eventually led him to Tamweelcom where he obtained two loans which were used to purchase the raw materials necessary to make the military badges and medals. With Tamweelcom's steadfast support, Ibrahim found that former obstacles dissolved as he moved toward fulfilling his dreams. Ibrahim is now planning to take a third loan to expand his shop where he will display his handwork for retail sale. Furthermore, Ibrahim plans to make the display tables and stands and will also buy new technical instruments to help him hone his craft and increase his productivity. The "crowning" success for Ibrahim and Tamweelcom was having Ibrahim's project win the Citi Group prize recognizing his project as the best of all the Tamweelcom clients! In honor of his success, H.M. Queen Rania Al-Abdullah visited Ibrahim in his humble shop; congratulated him for winning the Citi Group prize and expressed her interest and support of Tamweelcom and Citi Group in their efforts to uplift the national economy by supporting micro-enterprise development.
