A loan of $1,300 helped to pay the remaining part of the cost of his car.


Mohamad's story

Mohamad is a 24-year-old single man, who has been working as a guard since June 2004. In September 2012, he found an extra income job to improve his living conditions, because as a Palestinian, job vacancies and varieties are limited. He found this chance and couldn't refuse it, because he believes that he will work hard to learn how to be skilled in furniture-making and he might start his own business as soon as he finds himself skilled enough to take full responsibility for his own business. In addition, he wants to savie the necessary capital to start his own business.

Mohamad is applying for a Youth Loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to pay the remaining amount of the cost of his car so that he can move easily between both jobs, and be ready to reply to any future extra income furniture maintenance request.

This is Mohamad's second cycle as Al Majmoua borrower. He has a good history of paying back. He believes that his previous loan reflected positively on his social life and helped him a lot in his financial situation.

He hopes to keep on improving his living as much as he can.
