Abbas is a 26-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and is the only working sibling. With the support of his father, who is their main income provider, Abbas became capable of fulfilling his family's demands.

Abbas has owned an aluminum shop since 2010. Today, he is looking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase added aluminum supplies for his business. He notes that this will return higher income for him. In the future, he plans to open other branches in the surrounding areas.
