Haidar owns a generator that he uses to provide electricity for his neighborhood to compensate for the shortage of electricity by the power company. He purchased the generator in 2008 and he has hired four employees. He grew fast in this field and gained good experience. The demand has increased due to the lack of supply and the summer heat. He took this loan to build a roof that will protect his generator and the power lines and to build a room for the guard.

Haidar is requesting a loan for 1,200 USD to build a roof and build a room for the guard. He is aiming to continue to grow in this field and buy a new generator in another place to serve more people and save them from the hot summer without national electricity in Iraq.

The story of Haidar and his business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development clients who have been able to improve their business with a small business loan product, specifically designed to meet the needs of a small business where a relatively small amount of capital can provide significant business improvement.
