Husein is a 28-year-old married man and the father of three children. He has been working in the aluminum business since he was 10 years old. He didn't have a normal childhood living just like almost all of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

Husein and his wife share their family's responsibilities. She sells vegetables and fruits to make sure that they can afford their children's needs and requests and provide them with a normal living just like any normal child in this world.

Husein is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy the necessary aluminum for a requested project. He will also use part of the loan to help his sister in a financial problem she is facing. This is his first experience with Al Majmoua, and he hopes that his future requests will be invested in expanding his work place.
