Bazl's story

Bazl is 28 years old and lives in Sana'a, Yemen. He is a hardworking man who devotes the whole day to this business to help his family. He has been operating a spice store for many years. He feels that his business is reasonably profitable, based on the earnings it provides. He generally sells everything that he has to offer. He intends to expand his business and stock it with food products. For that reason, he has applied to Al-Amal Microfinance Bank for a youth loan of 200,000 Yemeni rials to buy spices and other items, such as oils, sugar, rice and cookies. This is his second loan from Kiva. He says he has benefitted from the first loan and he hopes to open more spice stores to improve his income.
