Abed Al Rahman
Abed Al Rahman is a 21-year-old single man who has been working for 12 years in construction work, specializing in painting. Abed Al Rahman was too young when he started working. He was only nine years old when he was forced to quit childhood's smoothness, and get through work roughness.

Abed Al Rahman has good experience in his business and is trusted by most of his customers. To improve his living, Abed Al Rahman also works as a delivery boy in a restaurant in order to increase his income.

He is applying for a Youth Loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to register his motorcycle, which he needs to transport his construction tools from one project to another and for his restaurant delivery job, because he has to own a motorcycle of his own in order to keep his job.

This is his first time as an Al Majmoua borrower. He hopes that his future experiences will have a special benefit.
