Jemal is a construction worker. He works on house renovations and his average monthly income is $240. Their existing income is not enough for a family of three. With this start-up loan, Jemal will purchase a truck and restart a transportation service business. He will carry and transport different things, depending on the needs and requests of his customers in order to generate income. He used to have a truck seven years ago and worked in transportation, so he has the appropriate experience in this field. That is the reason why he hopes the business will be successful and lucrative.
Jemal would like to thank all Kiva lenders.
