Haytham is a 33-year-old father of one daughter and one son. He previously sold fish from a small stall, but has now moved to a small store that belongs to his partner. Haytham requests a loan from Kiva partner FATEN to purchase a fish display refrigerator.
Haytham has a permit to access the land on the other side of the wall, so he can transport fish from the fishermen every morning. This allows him to sell fresh fish to his customers, which has in turn increased the number of his customers.
