Mahmoud is a 39-year-old married man and father of one child. He has been working in vehicle repairs, specializing in body work, since 1999.

Mahmoud is a hard worker, with a very good reputation in his region. He is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a van. He will use it to transport students as an additional business. This will help him ensure that his child, who attends a private school, will have the best education.

Mahmoud hopes to continue developing his business as much as he can, to make sure that he and his family have a good standard of living.
