Talal is a 40-year-old married man and a father of two children. He has been working in repairing auto bodies and automotive furniture for 15 years. In 2001 he started his own business, and he worked hard enough to develop it.

Talal is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy an old car, repair it, and sell it for a very good price. He is working in this way to increase his income and develop his business more, to make sure that he can reply to almost all of his family and customer needs.

He hopes to move his workshop to the main road so he can attract more customers in the future.
