Hasan is a 23-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and three working siblings. The family is facing bad financial circumstances and living in unpleasant conditions. For this reason, they are all cooperating for a better, respectable future. In 2010, he started to work as a beautician. He has a beauty shop in his town where he provides his customers with high quality beauty services. This is his first Kiva loan and he wishes to attain very good results so he asked today for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added beauty products and cosmetics so that he can improve his business operations and follow up on the new fashion. In almost all parts of Lebanon, demand for beauty and fashion products continues to be high and that was the reason for Hasan to choose this type of service.
