A loan helped to develop his newly established business by increasing his merchandise with special spring and summer collections.

Jaafar's story

Jaafar is an 18-year-old single man, the sole breadwinner for four other family members. Six years ago, he had to quit school and start working to support his family. Three months ago, Jaafar established his clothes selling business, and is working hard on developing it as much as he can.

Jaafar used to work during summer vacation to acquire the necessary experience in his domain, while for five years he sold clothes from his parent's house. He was very young when he started the business. Today he puts a lot of effort into developing his newly established clothing shop through an acquired YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua.

Through this loan, he will increase his merchandise with special spring and summer collections. He hopes to continue developing his business, and to buy his own work place soon.
