Yassine is a 28-year-old Lebanese man who lives with his wife and child. Since their marriage, he has taken on responsibility for supporting his family by running an auto spare-parts shop.

He is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, to increase his shop’s inventory of mechanical tools and supplies such as car mirrors. Yassine is really happy with how his shop is doing and the fact that he has earned a higher income by expanding it. In the future, he plans to open a new store at a new location.
