This is Nouh, a 26 year old engaged man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and two working siblings. Nouh’s father is the one taking care of the family and satisfying their needs. Nouh as well strives to work really hard and doesn’t hesitate to offer help whenever needed. He has owned a grocery store in his town since 2009 and has clients from all over the neighboring villages who pass by his shop to purchase their needs of food and provisions. He succeeded at work especially after being very welcoming and friendly. Today, he wants to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy supplementary products for his business such as candies, dairy products, canned/bottled foods, and many other items. He’s sure that by diversifying his products, his sales will increase by minimum 20%. This is how Nouh works to better develop his business.
