Mohammad is a 28 year old Lebanese engaged man. He’s living with his parents and one sibling, who works. His father is the one taking care of the family and responding to their needs. Unlike others in his age, Mohammad started to work very early, expecting to help his father with their expenses. He has been working as a plumber since 2002 on a freelance basis and has a fair number of clients asking for his services.

Today, he’s in need of a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new plumbing tools and expand his business. He notes that he’s willing to take bigger projects and that this Kiva loan will help him achieve his goal. In the future, he plans to open his own plumbing equipment shop.
