Refaat is a 34-year-old, married father of two children. Four years ago, he opened his own grocery store, where he sells foodstuffs and candies. Refaat’s business evolved quickly since then as he has been the only shop-owner in the area.

Running his business as a one-man-show, Refaat deals directly with wholesalers. To save time and costs, he recently bought a car to enable him to drive to his various providers. He is applying for a loan with Kiva’s Partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for the registration of his vehicle so he can begin using it. In reducing his expenses, Refaat can accumulate more savings for himself and his family and even consider expansion plans in the future.
