Walid is a 22-year-old, single man, who opened a convenience store nearly two years ago. He has suffered from lack of capital, so he hasn’t been able to cater to the large needs of customers in the area. In spite of this, Walid has a considerable client base, due to his integrity and honesty in trade.

In order to obtain cash and increase his stock of foodstuffs and detergents, Walid is applying for a Youth Loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua. With the capital, he will be able to support his customers’ demands, and further expand and succeed in his business.
