Ahmed is 28 years old, is married, and has two children. He owns a small shop where he makes and sells food (a type of bread called kahi in Iraq and Kuba). He started his business in 2011 and has gained good experience in this field. The quality of his food has led to an increase in demand and sales, but he still doesn't have sufficient capital to buy better equipment and renovate his shop.

Ahmed will use this loan to purchase a meat mincer and renovate his workplace. Ahmed aims to increase his profit and make more food products.
The story of Ahmed and his food shop is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for economic development clients.
