Moustafa is a 25-year-old married father of two. He has been working as a barber for fourteen years. He had to quit school and start working early to help his parents, because they couldn't afford to pay for his education fees.

He is a hard worker who is putting much effort into financially supporting his family and improving their living conditions. His childhood wasn't like any child dreams about, which is why he works hard to keep his beloved children from experiencing the same.

Moustafa started his own business in 2001, opening his own barber shop to develop his and his family's socioeconomic situation. He is well known in his region with his good reputation and the hard work he puts in to develop his work and please his family's and customers' needs.

He is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to buy a car, which he will use to expand his working zone and services. He will use this car to serve his customers in a better way by providing them haircuts at their homes or businesses upon request. Through developing his career, he is working hard to make his dream come true, which is to provide his children the best life and the best education ever.

He hopes that in the future he will be capable of buying his own shop instead of spending money on rent expenses.
