Mamed lives with his family, his wife and daughter. At a young age, he began working at a reinforced concrete shop. Since then, he has found this line of work to be interesting and very productive. In addition, he likes the idea of being his own boss. He works with four assistants every day in his own workshop.
Mamed works hard for his family's happiness. He is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner, VFAC for the dowry for his daughter, since he can't afford taking this amount directly from his business capital.
He hopes to keep on responding to his family's needs and expanding his business.
