Mohammad is a 24-year-old single Lebanese man. He lives with his parents and four children in their modest house, located in one of the beautiful Lebanese villages. His father works at a local company to cover the family’s household expenses. This is the reason of why Mohmmad started to work at an early age: he hoped to take some responsibilities off of his father.

Mohammad spent the last three years repairing electrical equipment until he decided to open his own shop just next to his house. Mohammad earns a barely fair income because of the clients’ financial situations; this is the reason of why he decided to take a youth loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase new repairing tools for his business. He confirms that these changes will help attract more clients, and thus increase his income by 15%.
