Rani is a 37-year-old married father of two children. He has been working in repairing the body of cars for eighteen years. In 2006, he established his current business, which is doing just fine but is considerably low income. His family's increasing educational and living needs made him think of starting another business.

Rani is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy a small van, which he will use to gain additional income through providing transportation services.

He hopes that in the future he can establish a car selling showroom.
