Ahab has an additional source of income. Since his family is dear to him, he has to be ready for any sudden request, which is why he has been working in a small cafe where he has been responsible for the hookah section for five years.
Today, Ahab is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy iron scraps at a very good price and sell it at a very good price too, in addition to paying his children's school fees. He hopes to expand his scrap business and to buy a wider truck, where he can collect a larger mass of scraps in it.
