Bashir's story

Bashir is 31-year-old engaged man living with his family in Sana'a, Yemen. He graduated from the college of pharmacy and now works as a pharmacist. At first he was working as a pharmacist in one of the pharmacies in the capital, Sana'a city, to look after his family. He couldn't accumulate enough money from his salary to start his own business, so he decided to sell his mother's jewelry in order to begin his own business, and after a time to open his own pharmacy. He started his own business two years ago.

Bashir earns good profits, but he faces the hardship of inadequate capital to meet the high demands of the patients. He warmly thanks Kiva lenders who helped him with his first loan. That loan helped him very much in developing his business and purchasing more medical requirements. His profits also increased since he become able to meet the demands of different types of customers.

After he successfully repaid all the installments on his first loan, he is now requesting another loan to expand his business more by purchasing more medical requirements. His dreams are to diversify his business and start up a big pharmacy. For this business, Bashir applied for a loan of 300,000 YER from AMB. He will use this loan to buy more medical requirements and medicines.

Bashir looks forward to improving his business and expanding it more, as well as opening a branch in the capital city. He hopes to get married soon.
