Mosa is a 49-year-old married man with three sons and one daughter. One of his sons is an employee, the other two are workers with decent salaries, and his daughter is a university student.
Mosa has a store for selling used home appliances. He wants to expand his business by purchasing and collecting used home appliances in bulk. He has insufficient funds, so he wants to take a loan of $2,000 from Kiva partner FATEN. When Mosa receives the loan, he will be able to expand his store by collecting more used home appliances for resale. This will enable him to compete well, increase his sales and income, and so provide better living conditions for his family.
