Hassan is a 30-year-old married man and the father of four children. He has been working as a blacksmith since 2000. In 2008 he opened his own business to increase his income and improve his family's living standards. His wife doesn't work. She takes good care of her family members and makes sure that they are all getting what they need. She puts so much effort into educating them properly.

Hassan is developing his business gradually. To make sure that he finishes his work requests on time, he is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to buy a power generator that will make his work easier, since they have a major electricity problem in his area and he needs it to finish his work.

This will be his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with a good standing paying back history. He hopes to keep on expanding his business as much as he can to provide his family with their necessary needs.
