Working from his house, Atef needs to renovate the room he uses for narguile preparations; over the years, it got very tainted due to charcoal burning. He applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua. He will also invest part of the loan in doing necessary maintenance in his house, in addition to paying extra school fees. Additionally, he will use the rest of the money for his delivery car’s engine maintenance.
