Khaled is a 49-year-old married man, father of three children. He has been working in the furniture-making business for 30 years. In 2003, he started his own business as a step toward increasing his income and improving his family's living.

Khaled is applying for his third loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy necessary wood for his business to respond more quickly to customer needs. His previous loans helped him a lot in his business, which positively impacted his family's quality of life.

At the beginning, Khaled faced a lot of financial problems due to his lack of experience in business, but he was capable of managing them due to his special talent in his domain. Today he is looking forward to increasing his customers and opening a showroom in the future.
