Ibrahim is a 23-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and two working siblings. He’s the one taking care of his family with the help of his two siblings.

Ibrahim has owned a coffee shop since 2009 in his town. People meet at his place to enjoy their time with friends, have a coffee and a hubble-bubble (hookah) as well.

Today, he wants to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase added products for his shop such as charcoal, coffee and many others. This will surely increase his sales and allow him to attract added customers.

In the future, he plans to open a snack shop just next to his coffee shop.
