Alaa's story

Alaa is a 26-year-old single man who works as a waiter in a café. His four years of experience has given him the skills it takes to deal with a variety of clients. He works very hard, often until late night hours, to make enough to provide his family with good living conditions. Alaa finds his income to be barely enough to cover all of his increasing demands. He considers Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to be his only hope in acquiring a new youth loan to settle some necessary car maintenance fees so that he can safely get to work on time.
