Ghazi is proud of his experience and strong reputation in his work. He notes that it has been a challenge to secure financing for his business. Today, for the third time, Ghazi has requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to purchase a spot welder for his work. His previous loans allowed him to continually improve his business by either purchasing better tools for his work, or simply by purchasing more iron for his business. In the future, he hopes to keep on improving and expanding his business.
