A loan of $1,000 helped to start a new coffee shop business.


Maher's story

Maher is a 33-year-old married man and father of four children. He has been working in the construction business for 11 years. In 2008, he started his own business to improve his family's living conditions and increase his income.

Maher specializes in cement work and is very talented in this domain. To improve his family's living and to make sure that his children have the best education, Maher is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to start another new business. He will buy an espresso machine in order to start selling coffee and hot drinks in his area.

Maher found a very good location to start his business, and he is very anxious to start it as soon as possible. He hopes to expand both businesses and improve his living.
