Ibrahim is a 22-year-old man. Ibrahim is engaged and lives in Lebanon with his parents and four siblings. In addition to Ibrahim and his father, considered the main income provider for the family, two of Ibrahim's siblings are also working.

Despite his young age, Ibrahim is thinking about having his own family and children and is threfore obliged to work continually to support those plans. He has been working in the construction field since 2006. Ibrahim works independently, dealing with a fair number of clients who are seeking his services.

Although Ibrahim is satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial position. He is therefore asking for a youth loan from Kiva's Partner, Ameen s.a.l, to allow him to improve his business by purchasing new construction tools. In the near future, Ibrahim also plans to take on an additional Kiva loan to expand and better develop his work. These actions show how Ibrahim works really hard to achieve his goals.
