A loan of $2,000 helped to pay for his wedding fees.

Aalaa's story

Aalaa is a 25-year-old single man, who has been working as a car mechanic and electrician for ten years. Aalaa was only fifteen years old when he started working to make his own living, and to provide his family with an additional income.

In 2010, Aalaa opened his own maintenance shop, to increase his income and improve his living. His business is developing well, because of his good reputation and long experience.

Aalaa is planning to make a small family of his own, but he can't afford to pay his wedding fees from his business, because he has already used some of his business capital for his house and its improvements. That is why he is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to pay for his wedding fees, and to keeping his business capable of supporting itself in a well managed way.

He wants to keep on developing his business as much as he can, to be sure that none of his future children will face what he faced during his childhood. He will make sure that they will get the best education ever, which has always been a dream for him.
