A loan of $700 helped to purchase grocery supplies.


Marwan's story

Marwan is a 27-year-old man who lives in Ibb, Yemen. He has a university degree but he could not get a job so he opened a grocery store. He started his business with limited capital and income. Because he is alone and has no one to support him, he did his best to improve and expand his business in order to build his future. Due to the current bad situation which Yemen faces, Marwan's business is making less profit and his customers are decreasing. Therefore, he is planning to bring new goods to his grocery store in order to keep his customers and improve his income. Marwan has requested a youth loan of 150,000 YER from Kiva partner AMB in order to purchase goods such as biscuits, cakes, soft drinks, rice and canned foods. He hopes that this will enable him to continue running his business successfully and make the business more profitable. In the future, Marwan would like to get a job and get married.
