A loan of $2,000 helped to buy a pick-up truck to transfer his products.


Karim's story

Karim is a 29-year-old married man and the father of two children.

For the past 12 years he has been working in the car services industry and has had his own business for car washing and lubrication. Recently, Karim diversified his sources of income and started trading carpets in his neighborhood.

Karim is applying for a youth loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy a pick-up truck to transfer his products, mainly lubricants and carpets from the wholesaler to his shop and at times to the customers’ homes. Karim is always considering ways to expand his work activities and generate more income to raise the living standards of his family.
