Bachir is a 48-year-old married father of one child. He has been working in the aluminum business for twelve years. At the beginning, he had financial problems, since he couldn't buy anything he needed for his business immediately. Today, his business is going just fine, but he needs extra external financial support to expand it. That's why he entered a second cycle loan with Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a large quantity of glass at good prices to improve his business. This loan will surely decrease part of his indirect business expenses, because he won't limit his work to specialized glass work, and the earnings for his services will increase. In this way, he will have merchandise available to work with. He hopes to expand his work and to move to a larger place soon.
