Khaled's story

Khaled is a 48-year-old married man and the father of four children. He has been working as a blacksmith for the last 34 years. This long experience helped a lot in improving his business and providing him with a special talent. Khaled is a hardworking man and he works hard to provide his family with the best living possible. Just like anyone who insists on improving his business, Khaled applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, because his last experience with Al Majmoua was impressive and he is optimistic too about this one. This time Khaled is willing to buy updated tools and machines necessary for making his work easier. Khaled is sure that through this loan, he will be capable of providing good living for his family. Khaled hopes to keep on improving his business more and more in the future.
