Nazih is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to start a new business that will help in increasing his income and in covering his family's requests. He will open a Hookah shop and he will let his son manage it. He believes that his son is big enough to take the responsibility of improving and expanding such a business.
This is his second experience with Al Majmoua and he is a good standing borrower. He hopes to expand both businesses in the future as much as he can.
