Mohamad's story

Mohamad is a 24-year-old single man who has worked as a carpenter for 10 years. Mohamad was too young when he started working to help his family earn a living. In August 2011, Mohamad started his own business from home. He makes furniture, in addition to plexiglass designs and requests. Mohamad is a hard worker. He puts a lot of effort into spreading his name all over the region. Mohamad is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to open a workshop to expand his production. He has been an Al Majmoua borrower for four cycles. All his previous loans helped a lot in improving his business. During that time he was a borrower in good standing. Mohamad is planning to keep on expanding his business by opening a bigger work space and employing new staff to help reply to customers' requests.
