Bassam is a 47-year-old married man with 3 school-age children. He has been working as a car painter for the past 35 years and he opened his own shop 13 years ago. Bassam has taken a first loan from Ameen and he is pleased with his decision. He said that the loan amount was appropriate for his work in the last year.

And today, Bassam is asking to take another Kiva loan of $1,500 to help expand his business by purchasing an air compressor and be able to meet the requirement of his clients and make a good income for his family.
