Ibrahim Kreishan


Ibrahim, a father to ten children and a retired military officer after suffering a leg injury, started his journey with Tamweelcom in 2007.

He worked two jobs between a grocery store in Marka and crafting military rank badges in an attempt to make ends meet for his family – in order to provide them with a better standard of living and opportunities.

In 2007, Ibrahim came to Tamweelcom in the hope of assistance to help him expand his military badges and medals creations.

Tamweelcom, seeing Ibrahim’s hard-work and relentless effort to establish a micro, income-generating project, gave him two loans which were used to purchase the raw materials necessary to make his military badges and medals.

After obtaining a third loan he expanded his shop where he displays his handwork for retail sale, and will also buy new technical instruments to help him refine 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 store, congratulated him for winning the Citi Group prize and expressed her enthusiasm and support of Tamweelcom and Citi Group in their efforts to uplift the regular citizen through supporting micro-enterprise development.

Ibrahim stated: “I have now accomplished my dream with the assistance of Tamweelcom. Without Tamweelcom, I would not have been able to become the person I am today, a man capable of supporting 10 wonderful children, and able to give them a better standard of living, good education and health care. I am forever grateful for Tamweelcom for making my dream come true.”
