Mohamad is a 58-year-old married man and father of five children. In 2003, he started up his own telecommunications store, selling telephones and mobile recharging cards and providing international calls. Being a stranger to his current village of work and residence, Mohamad had a rough start. However, he succeeded in building a wide client base thanks to his experience in retail, good customer service, and strategic location.

Mohamad is applying for a loan from Kiva Partner Al Majmoua to purchase more supplies to offer at his store. With this he will be able to ensure the availability of products to his customers. Mohamad will use the money left to support his son in starting up his own recording studio.
