Hussein is a 19-year-old single man. He’s from Lebanon and lives with one parent, a sibling and a cousin. Regardless of his young age, he was eager to start his own business as a plumber. He has been involved in this type of business for the past three years. He works on his own and his parents are really proud of him. Today, he is asking for a loan of $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional plumbing tools and supplies. This will facilitate his business operations, especially in installing faucets, tubes, pipes etc. In the future, he plans to open his own, complete plumbing business.
