Majed has had a barber shop since 2007, with 10 years of experience in his domain. He quit school during his intermediate stages and turned to seek a good income business, which he established on his own seven years ago.
Today, Majed is well-known in his region. Through his acquired loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua, he will make necessary maintenance to his shop with decoration, tiles and painting, in addition to renewing his business tools and machines to attract more customers.
He hopes to keep on developing his business in a well-managed way, and might move his shop to a better region.
