Mohammed's story

Mohammed is a 49-year-old man who lives in Sana'a ,Yemen. He is a father of seven sons and four daughters. He is a distributor who sells and distributes different sweets. He is not literate but has 20 years of experience in this field. Mohammed started his business by opening a small sweets bakery with a small amount of capital. As his business was small and there was no other bakery in the area, he attracted customers by making tasty sweets for them. He distributes his goods to many different groceries with a wheelbarrow. He not only uses his business as a source of income but for social purposes such as helping the poor by providing his sweets, especially during festivals and weddings seasons. Recently, Mohammed's business has decreased leading to a decrease in his profits. He has had to stop providing sweets for poor people because of the current bad situation which Yemen faces. Mohammed is requesting a loan of 300,000 YER from Kiva partner AMB in order to purchase materials for his business. In this way he hopes to increase his profits and continue providing sweets at social occasions. In the future, Mohammed plans to open a big sweet factory in order to distribute his goods around Yemen's provinces. He would also like to buy a new lorry to use instead of his wheelbarrow.
