Jamal is a 22-year-old single man. He has worked as a crane driver for the past three years, until he got his own crane in 2012. This is Jamal's second loan cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower; his previous loan helped him a lot in starting his own business. Today he is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to perform necessary maintenance on his crane and to continue building his house.

Jamal did not face any obstacles when he started his business, because he had previous relationships with a lot of people he had met before. He hopes that he will be able to buy more cranes in the future.
