Hassan is an ideal father who works the whole day planting, neglecting the sun's heat during the summer season and extreme cold in winter, in order to provide his five children a normal life.
Hassan is applying a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new van to distribute his vegetables among his customers, since he sold his old van because of its miserable mechanical and physical situation.
This would be his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower; he has a good repayment history. His previous loan helped him to improve his business a lot.
Hassan is planning to expand his business more and more, through increasing his variety of produce and expanding his distribution zone.
