A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a new car to use as his mobile workshop.


Abbass's story

Abbass is a 31-year-old single man, who has worked as a Blacksmith for the past 18 years. He is well known in his area for his good reputation and the special customer care he provides.
Abbass doesn't have his own working area; he uses his car as his mobile working shop, where he has all his necessary tools and machines. Howerver it became very risky and needs to be changed, because of its numerous mechanical problems.
Abbass applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new car necessary to keep his business going and improving.
Abbass's customers are from different regions since he is not located in one specialized place. He hopes to keep on improving his business, increasing his customers and expanding his working zone.
