Tarek wants to keep on improving his business, especially in the Holy Ramadan month. Most people are fasting and they come to buy goods from his shop – he has to be ready for any request. That is why Tarek has requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. This is his first loan and he hopes it will reflect positively on both his social and financial situation. Tarek's shop is located in a highly populated area, and his competitors are far away from his shop. That is why he is insisting on improving and increasing his merchandise to keep his customers satisfied.
Tarek used to work as a tailor, but he preferred to work with something that is directly to do with everyday living. Tarek hopes to expand his shop and introduce new products to his customers in the near future.
