Shawgy's story

Shawgy is a 26-year-old young man who lives in Taiz, Yemen. He has been operating a grocery store for five years and is the person who pays for the household expenses in the home he shares with his parents. He has experience and thanks Kiva a lot for financing his first loan.

He would like to expand his business and increase its sales so he can prosper financially. He applied for a youth loan of 200,000 YER from AMB to buy grocery items such as rice, sugar, flour, beans and soft drinks to offer in his business and thus increase his sales. He thanks Kiva again for financing his second loan.
