Abbas is a 20-year-old man. He’s single and lives in Lebanon with his parents and seven siblings, one of whom is working. He had many years of experience in the construction field; then he decided to work on his own and take on his own projects. He’s expert in his field and has gained a fair number of clients. Today, he needs to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed construction tools. This loan will facilitate his business operations and augment his revenues.
