45-year-old Hakob owns a metal lathe turning shop. He moved to this new place in January 2011 because he needed a wider place to do his business. He works in turning metals from non-useful to useful ones in addition to manufacturing non-existing metals on request.

Such a business is highly recommended but requires enough capital to keep buying updated machines.

Hakob is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new, updated machine that is necessary for his business.

This is his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. His last loan was also invested in buying a necessary machine, the thing that he intends to continue buying in the future.

Hakob is a married man with one child. He works hard to provide him with the best education and healthy living. He hopes to keep improving and developing his business and social life.
