Fahed got married almost a year ago and he is expecting to be a father this month. That's why he applied for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to pay for his wife's delivery and special baby's preparations requested, in addition to increasing his business capital through increasing the quantity of meat to be sold on a daily basis to increase his family's income.

Fahed is very anxious to meet his baby, and he hopes to provide him the best childhood ever unlike his which forced him to work for his own living since he was only 13 years. This is his third cycle as Al Majmoua is a borrower in good standing. He will work hard on expanding his business as much as he can for a brighter future.
