Asaad is a hard worker. He is planning to expand his business by applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua. This loan will help him buy his products from other sources so he can get special prices and offers.
His business is highly requested in his region. He is the only one with such items to sell, and his region has much construction work to support such a business.
At first, he had problems because he didn't know the market's needs. Today, he has become an expert and he knows exactly what the market needs and requests.
He hopes to start a wholesale trade as soon as possible to cover other requests in the region.
