Wissam is a 34-year-old man who lives in Tyre, in southern Lebanon, with his wife and their three children. Wissam owns a pickup truck that he has used for three years to transport construction materials or even furniture. He decided to start this business because he realized that he could improve his financial situation since this business allows him to increase his income.

He requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to do some maintenance work on his truck. This is his third loan cycle and he has always paid on time. His clients are people from his region and from the surrounding villages. In the future, he plans to keep expanding his business.
