Kamal is a 25-year-old married man; he is the father of one child. He has been working selling clothes, especially women's traditional cloaks (abaya), from his house. He is also employed in a company for additional income to improve his family's living.

Kamal is a hard worker who puts so much effort into pleasing everyone around him, and to making sure that he can provide his family with everything they need.

His business is going just fine, and he is preparing himself to buy a new spring and summer collection; that's why he applied for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. He will also help his brother with his dental medication.

He hopes to stay capable of replying to anyone's needs, especially his family members.
