Hassane works as a taxi driver, and he also transports village students from/to school, during the school season. He has a very good reputation, and he works hard at keeping it this way, because it is his advantage among the competition. Hassane has to keep his car in good shape, to keep his business working.
That's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to do necessary urgent maintenance requested on his car's engine. Hassane hopes to improve his business more and more in the future to open his own transport company.
