Mohamad has already had two loan cycles with Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua. His previous loan was invested in improving his business, and today Mohamad is applying for a new loan in order to increase his merchandise with special children's items for the spring and summer seasons. He will stock items such as coloring books, sea inflatables, games and many other entertaining items that will bring joy to the children during their Easter and summer vacations. This will also increase Mohamad's income and help in buying another car to replace the one that was stolen from him.
