Khaled, 27 years old and single, lives in a small village in the Bekaa Valley. He runs a nice clothing shop where he sells a variety of shirts, pants, and dresses for all types of clients. Khaled wants to earn additional income to provide a better livelihood for his family. He requests, for the first time, a loan of $US1,000 to purchase additional inventory. The timing for this loan is particularly important to him as there is a high demand for clothes for the "back to school" period and important holidays ahead. The loan will allow him to maintain an adequate amount of inventory on hand and will give him the flexibility to easily update his product selection if an item is selling well or not.
