As his region, Baalbeck, is famous for its agricultural activity, Mohammad started his own cultivation business at the age of 17. Until today, he has been planting and selling fresh and organic apples, apricots, peaches, and plums. He also operates his tractor for plowing his and other’s lands.
Mohammad is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua. He will use the money to register his van to operate it in transporting his produce to markets outside his area, such as Beirut. In selling his goods in the capital, Mohammad can generate more income than he would back in his hometown; consequently he would provide his children with better living conditions.
