Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is a young Lebanese man who is 27 years of age and single. He works at an auto repair and spare parts garage in order to earn a living and help his parents with some of their expenses.

Mahmoud decided to start his own business so that he can work independently and have stability. He has already gained a great amount of experience in this line of work. He is requesting a Kiva loan from Al Majmoua so that he can open his own retail shop for selling spare parts and to buy inventory to start his new business.

The hardworking young man wishes to succeed at his new business. He hopes to continue developing so that he can enjoy a prosperous future.
