Mohamad is a 30-year-old Lebanese married man. He is living with his wife and two children. Six years ago, he decided to start his own work as a farmer to supplement the family’s income. His job consists of cultivating vegetables. Today, he is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase required agricultural tools and supplies specifically for watering. He states that the loan will certainly help him increase his business productivity by a large percentage, which will help him to have higher profits. In the future, he plans to open a vegetable shop and start selling his own harvested goods.
