Mohamad, age 43, has worked as an electrician for 20 years. His extensive experience has brought him the trust of his customers and has provided him with the ability to provide specialized services that are highly requested at any time. Sadly, however, the income from this business is not stable, and since his family requires a consistent income, Mohamad started an extra business: a grocery store. He reports that it has provided much of the stability he had hoped for it to provide for his family.

To improve both businesses, Mohamad is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmou, in order to buy necessary tools for his electrician business in addition to adding more products to his grocery store. He expects an increased income in both areas as a result of this loan.

Mohamad is a man with a very good reputation both as an electrician and as a grocer. He is very highly respected by his customers.
