He has owned a general store since 2007, with 14 years of experience in this field. His store is well known in the region, because of his good quality products and special prices.
He sells home appliances and groceries. Moustafa is a loyal borrower from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, for seven consecutive cycles. He says that all of his previous loans were invested in increasing his business capital through adding new requested products, to please his customers as much as he can to acquire their loyalty.
Today Moustafa is applying for a loan to pay his children's tuition fees, in addition to buying diesel oil for the winter season for heating. It's too cold where he lives and works, and he has to be ready.
Moustafa is planning to add plastic products and bicycle sales soon.
