A loan helped to purchase insurance for his towing company.

Akram's story

Akram came to the United States six months ago, as a refugee from Iraq. He has a college degree in theology and he is passionate about owning his own business. He decided to start a towing business, after one of his friends taught him about the industry.

With the help of his father in Iraq, he was able to purchase a used tow truck and is currently working for ADZ Transport Inc and SDS Motors. These two companies are currently using Akram’s towing services.

Akram also works as an interpreter, but the income is not enough to provide for him and his wife, so he would like to take on additional towing jobs.

Akram is currently only carrying the minimal insurance required to operate his towing business. To be able to take on more jobs, he needs to purchase full coverage and an additional insurance required by the DMV.

This Kiva loan will make it possible for Akram to purchase the insurance he needs, so he can provide for his family. The additional loan funds will be used to purchase tools and make some repairs to the tow truck.
