Mazen's story

Mazen is a 27-year-old single man who has been working at selling mobile phones, accessories, and prepaid cards for the past five years. In 2012, he opened his own shop to increase his income and develop his living situation. Mazen is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to increase his mobile phones and prepaid cards capital. He is very excited about this loan, and he hopes that he can keep on replying to his customers' needs, since his previously acquired loan helped a lot in developing his business and increasing his income. Most of his customers are his neighbors, friends, and relatives. As for the future, Mazen is intending to keep on expanding his business, to improve his social and financial living situation, and to plan to make a small family of his own in the future.
