Mohamad is a 25-year-old single man who started working twelve years ago as a plumber to help his parents in making their living and covering their expenses. He quit school during intermediate level, although he wishes he had the chance to experience more of it.

Today and exactly three years ago, he started working for himself and established his own successful business. He has one employee to help him in responding to customers needs.

Mohamad is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to update his business tools and make necessary decorations to his house.
This is his first loan cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, but he hopes that it will be his first step forward towards future relationships that will lead to business development.
