Sharif is Lebanese, 29 years old, and engaged. He is still living with his parents and two siblings, waiting for the perfect time to manage his life, get married, and have his own family and children. This is why he started to work at an early age, even though his father strives to work really hard to satisfy the family's needs.

Two years ago, Sharif started his independent business. He has been working in installing Internet cables and repairing the damaged ones. He has his own loyal customers who always ask for his services. With his requested youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l, Sharif will be able to purchase the necessary cables and Internet supplies for his business. This will increase the number of his customers and most probably his revenues.

One of his greatest dreams is to earn money and marry the woman he loves.
