Zein is a 33-year-old married man and father of two children. He works hard to fulfill their needs and make all their desires come true. Zein is a hard working man. He has worked in agriculture since his first day of working, but to increase and improve his family's income and social situation, he bought in 2005 a small van, which he used to start a new business transporting students from the region to/from school.

His business is improving because of the trust the parents have in him. He is a good driver and the safety of the kids is the main thing he cares about.
His car is new and in a good situation. Sometimes he uses it to take tourists all over the Lebanese borders upon tourists' requests, and most of these tours happen in the summer when there are no students to be committed to.

Zein is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua-Kiva partner, in order to pay what's left from the bus's price. He hopes to expand his business more and more in the future by increasing the number of buses he owns.
