Youssef is a 44-year-old married man and a father of two children. He started selling espresso coffee and hot drinks in early March 2011. He used to work as a taxi driver but his health forced him to stop such a business and turn to a more comfortable one.
The new business is going fine, but needs support to develop more. That's why Youssef has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new, bigger and updated espresso machine capable of meeting his customers' needs.
Youssef is a hardworking man who is trying his best to provide his family with a good and healthy standard of living. He has previously taken two loans from Al Majmoua, which reflected positively on his social life. He hopes this loan will have the same impact.
