Bilal's story

Bilal is a 31-year-old married man and father of one child. He has been working in jewelry repair and maintenance since 2008.

Bilal is a hard worker, talented, and experienced in his domain. He is well known in the region. He has a good reputation especially concerning his integrity while dealing in such a business.

Bilal's workshop is located in a very important zone centered among the gold retail market. This is very important for the dealers that he is located among in order to deal with their customers' sudden requests.

Bilal applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy gold and start designing, producing, and selling his own hand-made products. This step forward will improve Bilal's earning potential and will encourage him to elevate his working production to a higher level especially since he has the necessary skills requested for this kind of business.

Bilal hopes to open a showroom that will attract a lot of customers and attention to his own hand-made designs.
