Mohammad is a 25-year-old man. He’s single and lives in Lebanon with his parents and two siblings. Despite his young age, Mohammad is obliged to work continually as he is responsible for helping his father cover the family expenses. His youngest sibling is also working in order to supplement the family's income. Mohammad owns a restaurant where he provides his customers with delicious food such as “Foul”, one of the Lebanese traditional dishes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Regardless of being satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial situation. That’s the reason why he’s asking today for a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve his business by purchasing additional food provisions. In the near future, Mohammad requires hiring new employees in order to help him achieve the work tasks.
