Mohammad is married with four children. His wife doesn't work and so his bookstore is the only source of income for the family.
Mohammad started this bookstore with 500 USD capital eight years ago as a small kiosk at the entrance to a school. Now he has a good bookstore where he sells books, copy books, office tools, and also gifts and accessories.
Mohammad requested the loan to meet the demand of schools that request a lot of photocopying of documents. He wants to buy a photocopier with the loan.
Mohammad appears in the photo at the entrance to his bookstore and, in the small inset photos, inside his shop.
