Mohammad is a 33-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and three school-aged children. He is the main income provider of the family and works very hard to be able to handle the heavy living expenses. He certainly gets huge support from his wife who also works at a local company. She has been involved in this occupation since 2009. As for Mohammad, he has owned an aluminum shop. He earned great experience and started to manage his own business two years ago. He is specialized in completing aluminum work. With his requested loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase the needed materials such as aluminum and start his new project properly. This will definitely allow him to achieve his work competently and be able to present good quality services to the clients. He works on a freelance basis and hopes to take bigger projects and increase his earning in the near future.
