A loan of $1,475 helped to repair his home.


Aziz's story

Aziz is a man of 46 years of age, married, and has three children, out of which two are students. Aziz works as an engineer at a factory, and his monthly income barely is enough for daily life. His wife works as a teacher, and a teacher's salary is also small. Therefore they can never save up money for repair of their apartment.

In order to do repairs they need a large sum of money, and they don't have this amount. After having learned about the loans from a friend, Aziz decided to turn to us for a loan. He is happy that he can restore his apartment and stepwise repay the loan received with the family's incomes.
