Mohammad's story

Mohammad is a 27-year-old man who lives in Tyre, southern Lebanon with his wife and their child. Mohammad has owned a bakery for seven years. Mohammad has an oven, and he sells mankoucheh. He is known for his good and very tasty mankoucheh. A mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza. The most common toppings are zaatar (thyme), jebneh (cheese) and lahm bi ajin (minced meat). You can eat it anytime of day, but somehow it tastes better in the morning. Mohammad requested a loan of 1000 US dollars from Al Majmoua (Kiva's Field Partner) in order to purchase flour, pay school tuition, and pay off his debts. This is the first time that Mohammaad has requested a loan.



Mohammad is known for his work because he makes very good and tasty mankoucheh. His clients can be anybody. When he first started his business, he faced the difficulty of finding clients. He decided on doing this business because he had good experience. In the future, he plans to expand his business.
