Mosbah is a 42-year-old father of two children. He has gathered and sold used junk hardware (made or iron and other metals) for six years.

He states that it is the best job he could find because it is hard for a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon to find the ideal job.

Although his life is hard and insecure, he never stops smiling.

Mosbah is applying a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy more iron at a special price. He will then sell it at a very good price; he might use part of the loan to make necessary repairs to his home.

This will be his third cycle as Al Majmoua borrower. He has a good payment history and an obvious business development plan.

In the future, he hopes to buy a car or truck to transport his items easily, which will improve his business and support his income.
