Hasan is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to start a new business. He will start selling mobile phones, prepaid cards and accessories. His old business is unique in his area, since it's hard to find such a one in Southern Lebanon, because of religious issues.
This is his second cycle with Al Majmoua, and his previous loan improved his business a lot and covered his wife's eye surgery expenses. His father used to have such a business, that's why he had good experience in it.
Hassan hopes to improve his business more and more to start up a wholesale trade in the future.
