Abed Al Ilah
Abed Al Ilah is a 27-year-old single man. He has been working as a tailor, sewing internal and external curtains for the past eleven years. He was only sixteen years old when he quit school and entered the business world to help his parents improve their standard of living. In 2005, he bought his first tailoring machine and started working from his parents’ house. That was his first step towards developing his own business and earning an income.

Today Abed Al Ilah is well known in the region and recommended by most of his customers. He is very anxious to expand his business but he has shortage in cash. That is why he has applied for a YOUTH LOAN for the first time from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. This loan will help him buy the necessary tools and machines to improve and expand his business.

He is very optimistic about the results from the requested loan. Further, he hopes that, as a result of this loan, he will be able to move his business to an external shop very soon.
