Mohamad works hard to fill his family's needs. He used to work helping people moving furniture and other agricultural products from one place to another, which is in fact tough work for a person his age because it needs a lot of physical effort, which he doesn't have at all at this age.
Mohamad is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase his business merchandise with special winter offers.
When we asked Mohamad about his plans for the future, his answer was that he dreams of expanding his retail shop to a wider market. This will be his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. His previous loan helped him a lot in increasing the variety of products he sells.
