For the past eight years Mahmoud has maintained a perfumery where he prepares and sells perfumes. It is his family’s main source of income, so he’s been working hard to develop it. At the beginning he faced many problems because he didn’t have experience in this domain, but now his customers recommend him to others.
Today Mahmoud is applying for a 1,000 USD loan through Kiva’s partner Al Majmoua to add accessories, bags and other merchandise to his shop so as to expand his business and diversify his products. In the future he is going to add school supplies to his shop.
