Mouhamad's story

Mouhamad is a 24-year-old married father of two who has been repairing car tires for the last nine years. He now manages a scrap shop that he acquired from his father and uncles, who had trained him in the field. Since Mouhamad is a Palestinian refugee and lives in a refugee camp with limited work opportunities and wide competition, he has faced and mostly overcome many obstacles in managing his shop. He is the sole earner in his family, and he makes enough to just get by. As a consequence, Mouhamad can't afford to send his two children to school. He acquired a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua in order to increase his merchandise, which promises progress in new extra income. In the future, he intends to explore a certain piece of land to enlarge his market in more scrap and pre-used electronics.
