Hussein is a 63-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife, five working children and two others who are still studying. He has been working in security in a local hotel since 2007. After finding it hard to cover his daughter’s heavy educational fees, he decided to borrow $1,100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay her courses at the university. He believes in the importance of education and is ready to sacrifice as much as possible in order to see his child achieving higher educational levels. In the future, he plans to open his own security company and hire people to work on his behalf.
