Hassan is an 18-year-old single man who has been working at fixing and selling glass for eight years. He opened his own business in 2010. Hassan was only ten years old when he had to quit childhood and get involved in a business field in order to help support his family. He misses his childhood, and that's why he works hard to develop his business - to make sure that his future family, if he has one, won't suffer the same as he did.

Hassan applied for a Youth Loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a big quantity of glass from the wholesale market to expand his business. This loan will help a lot in expanding his business, and will surely increase his income. He hopes to diversify glass colors and types to fit with customers' needs.
