Hussein is a 45-year-old man. He is married and lives in Lebanon with his wife and three school-age children.

Hussein is obliged to work continually as he wants to better enhance his family’s way of living. He has been working in the construction field since 1990. He specializes in floor cleaning and painting as well. He works on a freelance basis and has many projects to be accomplished.

Regardless of being satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial situation. That’s the reason he’s asking today for a loan from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l. to improve his business by purchasing new tools as he plans to keep on offering the best quality of work ever.

In the near future, he plans to take added loans to open his own paintings shop. This is how he works really hard to achieve his goals.
