Abbass's story

Abbass is 46 years old, married and the father of five children. Since 1980, he has made a living by owning and running a store where he soft drinks, juices, cheese and dairy products. He has 31 years of experience in this field and a deep understanding of the needs of his customers. His store is in a very good area with lots of customers passing by.

It is common at all levels of this society for people to have multiple businesses, which is why Abbass also does body work on cars. He enjoys this business and hopes to improve and expand it as much as he can by opening a suitable garage and buying all the necessary equipment. Until he can afford the capital he needs to do this, Abbass has decided to apply for a loan to buy a new van to work on that he can use as a bus to generate additional income. He is applying for this loan, his third, from Al Majmoua, a Kiva partner, after repaying his first two loans completely and on time and thereby becoming a borrower in very good standing.

Abbass is aiming to earn more profits so that he can provide a better life to his family and and open a repair garage.
