Mohamad is a 52-year-old man who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Mohamad has owned a laundry for almost two years now, and he is well-known for his fine work. When he first started his business, he was successful because he was the only laundry in the neighborhood.

Mohamad decided to take up this occupation because it had been his family’s business. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists. He requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase a new dry cleaning machine for his shop. This is the first time that Mohamad has requested a loan.

In the future, he plans to keep expanding his business by offering ironing services.
