Hussein is a Lebanese single man. He’s 21 years old. He’s really attached to his parents and two siblings who are both working. Cooperating together, Hussein and his family are capable of covering their heavy expenses in order to live a respectable life. He started his business at an early age. He had to work really hard to take some responsibilities off his father. He has been working as a car mechanic in his own garage and has gained a fair number of customers asking for his services. He also visits them at their locations in case of big damages. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to enlarge his business and buy new mechanic tools. He wishes to respond rapidly to his clients’ problems and he believes that acting properly is really essential to attract more customers.
