Ziyad's story

Ziyad is a 36-year-old married man and the father of one child. He has worked as a butcher for 17 years. He's a man with a good reputation who works hard to improve his service to his customers and to meet their needs.

Ziyad is well known in the region because, compared to others, his shop is clean, his prices are affordable and his meat is tasty, as his clients say. He is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for his sixth loan, in order to buy sheep, raise them and then sell their meat. He likes to do this because, as he says, he takes good care of the sheep to give him the tastiest meat to serve.

He's a borrower in good standing with Al Majmoua, and hopes to remain with the program. He hopes to expand his business and cover all of his family's expenses.
