Mohamad is a 37-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He has been working as a freelance construction worker for the past 24 years. His job is specialized, in painting walls and ceilings. During his career, Mohamad has been able to work closely with multiple construction projects and he is strong enough to finish several projects at the same time.

Mohamad's wife supports him a lot through taking good care of their house and children. She also manages their household expenses. Today, Mohamed is asking to borrow a loan, from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new Renault Rapid car. The car is a necessity for his business to transport his tools from one project to another. The loan would also increase his ability to purchase construction tools and supplies for a new project he is planning to do.

Mohamad is going to sell his old car, because it's causing him more maintenance costs. He has a real need to get extra money in order to improve his family's standard of living.
