Ghassan is a 52-year-old married man, father of three children, who has been working in transportation since 2002. Ghassan wants to buy a new car that will help improve his business by attracting tourists who ask for a private taxi to go on a tour all over the country in a comfortable car. He said that "it is time to change my car, because this one is getting old and tired like humans it's almost its time to rest."

Ghassan intends to sell his current car and has requested a loan from Al Majmoua-Kiva partner, in order to add this money to what he gets from his car's price. This will allow him to purchase a new car.

This business is his only source of living, and he works hard to improve it to stay attractive to new customers and adapt to different changes. Ghassan hopes to stay healthy and active, in order to reply to all requested tours, and to keep on providing his family with the best living.
