Khalil is a 61-year-old married man and father of one child. He has been working as a taxi driver for eighteen years. He used to work as a tailor but he changed to a daily income business to improve his family's living. His car is his only way for making his living, so he has to keep it in good shape as much as he can. Unfortunately, he is facing mechanical problems with his car. That's why he applied for his first loan cycle from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to change his car's engine as soon as possible to keep providing his family with the requested daily income necessary for living.
