Mohammad is a 24-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and three siblings at their modest house located in a beautiful Lebanese village. Mohammad spent the last three years working in electronics until he decided to open his own shop. But he’s not the only one covering the family expenses; his youngest brother and parent are also supplementing the family’s income.

Mohammad always wanted to better develop his business and improve his work as well, but till now he has earned a barely fair income. For that reason he decided to take out a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renovate his shop and change its interior decoration. He confirms that the loan will help him increase his sales thus his income by 15%. And as Mohammad wishes to increase his earnings, he also wishes to become an electronics wholesaler.
