A loan of $1,500 helped to open a shoe shop.


Hassan's story

Hassan is a 21-year-old single man. He opened an Internet cafe in September 2011, with 8 years of experience in this field. He also sells mobile phones, phone, accessories, and prepaid cards. Hassan is a hard worker. Before starting his own business, he used to work in a hotel, but ever-ambitious, he insisted on making his own business plans.

Hassan is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua so that he can open a shoe shop and finish paying off the computers. He wants to open the shoe shop as an additional business, to increase his income and improve his standard of living. This is his first time as an Al Majmoua borrower and he is very excited to take this step forward.

Hassan hopes to keep on starting new businesses, and to make a beautiful small family of his own.
