He’s putting in all his efforts to be able to meet his family's needs, with the help of his wife who works as a tailor. In 2001, Abde Hamid decided to start his own business as a real estate broker. In parallel, he is benefiting from his retirement compensation. Today, he’s requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase land. This will develop his business and push him to increase his profits. In the future, he plans to expand his business and to gain additional customers.
