Mahmoud is a fifty-year-old married man and the father of two children. In 1983 Mahmoud opened a grocery store in his village to serve his villagers with most of their needs. He has 30 years of experience in this domain. Mahmoud is a hardworking man with an excellent reputation. His shop is filled with many different things attractive enough for customers to buy even though they don't need them at the moment. In addition to food, candies & sweets, Mahmoud sells children toys, and that's why he needs a variety of items that can catch children's attention.

To do so, Mahmoud applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. This is his first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower, and he hopes his future loans will be invested in expanding his business more and more. Mahmoud might use part of the loan in helping his son do necessary sanitary work in his future house.
