Issam is a 38-year-old married man and the father of two children. He is a hard working Palestinian man, who puts in a lot of effort to provide his family with the best living ever. Issam has managed two businesses for 17 years. He owns a shoes and bag selling shop, and at the same time he is an expert plumber, but since the plumbing business doesn't generate a good income, he puts a lot of effort into supporting the shoe business because it generates a good income.

But unfortunately this business isn't good enough for him to increase its income automatically and that's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase his shoes collection with the new spring-summer collection. Issam hopes to keep on expanding his business more and more to provide his family with the best living ever and he wants to make sure that they will have a brighter future.
