Hachem is a 54-year-old divorced man, who has spent his whole life taking care of his three children. He was father, mother and friend all at the same time.

Hachem is a hardworking man, sacrificing himself for his children's best interests. He has owned a specialty home products and gift shop since 1995. It's his only source of income and that's why he invests a lot in it to give him back what he's seeking.

Hachem's shop needs some necessary maintenance to be done, in addition to expanding his product range with a new released collection, and that's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to obtain requested needs.

It's his fourth cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, and he describes his experience as a smart step taken to move forward. He hopes to keep on improving his business as much as he can.
