A loan of $1,000 helped to perform necessary maintenance on the van he owns and runs for his transportation business.


Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is a 35-year-old married father of two children who has been working as a barber for sixteen years. He also owns a small bus which he runs for transportation services as an additional income business to improve his family's standard of living and increase his income.

Mahmoud is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to perform necessary maintenance on the van (small bus) that he owns and runs for transportation services.

Mahmoud hopes to open a spare auto parts shop in the future to improve his socioeconomic situation. He likes his current business because he has a lot of experience and it can be managed with a small amount of capital. However, he is currently working hard to develop a new career.
