Mohamad is a 49-year-old married man and a father of four children. He has been working in transporting fruits and vegetables and planting tobacco since 1996. His business is just fine but not good enough to cover all of his family's expenses.

Mohamad is well known in the region and has a good reputation. He applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to start a new business to increase his income; he will open a small cafe, and he will also buy a car necessary to transport all the cafe needs in a short period of time.

Mohamad has been an Al Majmoua borrower for four consecutive cycles, whose paying-back history is in good standing. His previous loans were invested in the tobacco business and had a good impact. He hopes to keep supporting all his businesses and to manage them in a good way.
