Mohamad used to work as an accountant, but just like almost all of the Palestinians living in Lebanon, his working opportunities are nonexistent, so the grocery store was the easiest and fastest business to cover his family's needs and expenses.
Mohamad applied for a loan from KIva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase his business merchandise with special cereals requested for winter, drinks and conservatives. He also hopes to open a larger shop in the future that might turn into a supermarket.
This is Mohamad's second cycle as Al Majmoua borrower,. He has a good payback history.
