Jawad is a 23-year-old Lebanese single man. He is living with his parents and two siblings. In 2010, he started to work repairing air conditioners and ventilators. In addition, he specialized in repairing refrigerators. Jawad is very satisfied with his new job and he's pleased with the idea of making his business a success, especially after seeing a need for such services in the region. Today, he is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase new tools needed to make his repair services much easier to implement. In the future, he plans to open his own air–conditioning shop.
