Yasser's story

Yasser is a 47-year-old married man and a father of six children. He has been working in furniture painting for 12 years. Yasser has a good reputation and his good work attracts new customers. Because of the hard financial situation he is facing to fulfill his family's needs, Yasser is working on starting an additional business to cover almost all of his family's expenses, which is why he applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. Through this loan, Yasser will open a convenience store in his village. This new business will surely improve his family's living, and will reduce the pressure on him. He hopes to expand his store to a supermarket in the future.
