Ibrahim is a 50-year-old, married man, and the father of seven children. Two years ago, he opened his own electricity supply station, and now he employs three permanent workers. In a country where electricity is not continuously provided, Ibrahim’s business can be quite profitable. The concept is that the people in the village subscribe to Ibrahim’s service and pay a monthly fee for the supplementary electricity they are getting.

Since his business mainly relies on the motor generators he has, Ibrahim is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to repair one of his three generators. This would increase his productivity, and consequently, his electricity supply and revenues. Though his business didn’t start well because of his weak experience in the field, Ibrahim was able to progress due to his market-oriented thinking, his integrity and competitive prices.
