Hassan is a 38-year-old married father of two children. He has been working in baking special delightful bread and traditional Manakish and pastries since twenty-two years ago. In 2012 he opened his present bakery and he is working hard to develop it to meet customers needs.

Hassan is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy a new oven that works on burning wood instead of gas, because it produces pastries with a special baked taste and an attractive finishing color too.

Hassan hopes to improve his bakery through the future loan through making necessary maintenance and decoration to please his customers and attract new ones.
