Jamal is a 49-year-old married father of four children who established his current espresso coffee-selling business years ago.
He is the sole breadwinner for his family. It takes a lot of additional effort to expand his business and improve his family's living.

Jamal is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase his business merchandise with special coffee needs, in addition to plastic cups and many other business needs to meet the increasing number of customers.

This is Jamal's fifth cycle as Al Majmoua borrower; his previous loans helped him a lot in developing his family's living and covering almost all of their needs.

Jamal used to work as a builder, but his physical situation isn't good enough to handle such hard work, which made him establish the current business.
