Ziyad is well known in the region because, compared to others, his shop is clean, his prices are affordable and his meat is tasty, as his clients say. He is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for his sixth loan, in order to buy sheep, raise them and then sell their meat.

He's a borrower in good standing with Al Majmoua, and hopes to remain with the program. He hopes to expand his business and cover all of his family's expenses.
