Izzat, age 53, earns an income by gathering used tins and plastics and reselling these for recycling use. It's been 15 years since he started this business, and it is the only source of income for the family. He and his wife have three children.

Izzat's car needs a lot of maintenance in order for him to stay mobile and to improve and expand his sector. Is is why he has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to be able to perform necessary maintenance on his truck.

This is Izzat's twelfth cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower with an excellent repayment history. His previous loans have had positive effects on both his social and financial situations.

Izzat hopes he can buy a new truck in the future with the help of Al Majmoua loans.
