Gabi is a 60-year-old married man and father of three children. He has been a specialist repairing car bodies for 50 years. Gabi was only 10 years old when he first started working, not having a normal childhood like others. He works hard to provide for his family's needs. Gabi's work is hard and needs an increased physical effort. He is getting old which is why he must do his best now to increase his income to insure his old-age living needs. Gabi always dreams to improve his work, so he requested a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. With the loan capital, he will be able to buy a used car that needs to be repaired and sell it. This will help him to start a small car-trading business. He'll also buy spare parts and special tools for his business.
His wide experience with Al Majmoua loans and in his business has brought him positive outcomes. Gabi is grateful for Kiva and Al Majmoua for supporting him.
