A loan of $2,500 helped to purchase stocks of merchandise before Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting.


Fahmi's story

Fahmi is a 24-year-old, single man running a mini-market business. Over the years, he has grown his trade gradually from a convenience store to what it is now. Currently, he sells groceries, detergents, toiletries, soft drinks and tobacco products. He enjoys the loyalty of his customers who are satisfied with the quality of his products and reasonable pricing.

Fahmi is applying for a Youth Loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to stock merchandise before Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting. During that period, demand for foodstuffs rises substantially due to the habit of giving large feasts and community gatherings. For this, Fahmi has to be prepared to serve the needs of his crowded neighborhood and keep up to the competition from other traders.
