Karim is a 40-year-old single man who has been working as a chef in a hotel for a year and a half. He loves his work a lot and enjoys doing it on a daily basis.

Karim's work and home are located in a very rough area during the winter season, especially the transportation over the thick snow.

Because he is dedicated to his job, he is working hard to face any unexpected issue and to keep on coming despite any unexpected circumstances. That's why he is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua: to buy a car that will ease his transportation from home to work during the heavy winter season.

He hopes that one day he can open his own restaurant that he could develop into a motel in the future.
