Nazih is a 48-year-old married man and father of eight children. This big family needs a lot of care and high income to cover their expenses. Nazih works in doing necessary maintenance to all types of cars but has specialized in changing fuel oil and lubricants for 30 years.

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.
