Jihad is a 37-year-old married man and a father of one child. He has been operating his own variety store for 15 years now; he sells accessories, perfumes, toys, and gifts. Jihad previously took a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, and he was very satisfied with the credit, especially its amount. Currently, Jihad is applying for a second loan. He will invest the money in buying new merchandise, mostly accessories and gifts. With this, Jihad will be able to serve the increasing demand of his customers. In the future, he is planning to further diversify his store and attract new customers.
