Izzat is a 51-year-old married man and father of five children. Izzat opened a grocery store as his lifetime business to provide a good living for his family. As life started to be difficult for him financially Izzat thought of starting a new extra business to help to improve and increase his income. He decided to open a small espresso zone in his shop, where he sells coffee, tea, and the popular Hooka for rent, as it's used these days. To take this step Izzat requested a loan from Al Majmoua, a Kiva partner, and it brought a very good income.

Now Izzat is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua to increase his shop's merchandise with goods requested by students and those important for the winter season. It will be his second cycle as a borrower.

Most of his customers are neighbours and villagers, who support him to raise his children in a good environment.
