Mohamad is a 26-year-old Lebanese single man. In 2007, he decided to become the proprietor of his own business; so, he opened a restaurant, where he provides his customers with delicious beans.

Because of his friendly personality, Mohamad was able to maintain a good number of loyal customers that visit him to enjoy his food. But we all know that there are ups and downs, and this is the moment when Mohamad is facing a situation that is requiring him to request a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to be able to overcome all the obstacles.

He states that with the loan, he will buy baking tools and supplies in addition to required quantities of food that will help him increase his business productivity and, therefore, his income.

Mohamad is very motivated to receive the loan, as he is sure that it will substantially grow his business.
