A loan of $1,500 helped to help grow his business.

Abd Alkarim's story

Abd Alkaim, a 28-year single man from Lebanon, rents a shop to provide auto and motorcycle repair services. He also buys and sells spare parts. Abd has been working in auto repair since 2008 and has eight years of experience in the industry. His main customers are friends and community members, and he is proud of the quality of service he provides, saying that his work is unmatched by other area repair shops. He decided to pursue a job in auto repair to gain experience and as a way to help support his family.

Abd notes the challenge in acquiring sufficient capital to help grow his business, which is one reason he is seeking his first loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Al Majmoua. In the future, he hopes to further expand his business.
