Joseph is a 52-year-old single man who has been working as a butcher for 22 years. He has wide experience in his field and his customers are very loyal to him since he was the first in his region to open a big butchery. Most of his customers prefer to deal with him because he raises his own cattle and sells the meat. In this way, Joseph gives confidence to his customers that the meat they are eating is coming from well-raised cattle.

Joseph is working on expanding his business. That's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy and raise a head of cattle to trade for additional income. This is his second time as an Al Majmoua borrower. He describes his first experience as impressive and he was a borrower in good standing.

He hopes to expand his businesses as much as he can to please his customers in many different ways.
