Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is 22 years old. He is a young man who lives with his two sisters and two brothers in the same house with his parents. His father is an old man and Mahmoud helps him with family needs and with household expenses.

He has a small piece of land of about six carats, which belongs to his father, but Mahmoud has managed it because his father is elderly.

Mahmoud wants to develop the land, which is the only source of money for the whole family. He is requesting a loan to buy basil seeds for cultivation and agricultural land insecticides. He hopes to increase his family's income and help his father pay all of his medical care expenses. And he hopes for everyone in his family to have better living conditions.
