Ibrahim is a 30-year-old single man who opened his own grocery store in 2008 to improve his living. He used to have a cash van that he used to work on and distribute his goods among neighboring villages.

He is always thinking of improving his living and increasing his income through different businesses. He is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to start an additional business, and to support his own grocery store with the amount left. He will open an entertainment hall, where he will put a pool table, and also buy baby food (for his grocery store) requested by almost all of his customers and villagers.

Ibrahim is a hard worker, putting so much effort on improving both his businesses, and his social living. He hopes that the new business will improve the existing one, through the increased requests that will take place on the soft drinks, chips and many other sweets and chocolates, since he is planning to have the businesses stuck to each other to manage both in a very well managed way.
