Mohamad is a 50-year-old Palestinian married man and the father of eight children. He has been working in selling used hardware since 21 years ago. In 2007, he started his own business to improve his living conditions and increase his income to provide his family a better life.

Mohamad is applying for his third loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase his business capital with used hardware to expand his business. He buys old used items and sells them to the recycling market at a good price. This is a hard and tough business, but Mohamad has grown used to it.

Mohamad is looking forward to expanding his business in the future through renting a piece of land and spreading all of his merchandise on it in a well separated way to make his items clear to sell to specific dealers.
