Kassem
Kassem is an 18-year-old single man from Lebanon, a place known for friendly and welcoming people. He’s living in a house located in South Lebanon with his parent and two siblings. Kassem and his young brother cooperate together and wish to bring added income and enhance their way of living.

This ambitious young man started his own business. His job consists of restoring computers and implementing software into them as well. He works with high professionalism and always seeks to improve his knowledge; this is why he looks today to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase added software and programs, plus perform the needed maintenance on his car that will facilitate his transportation.

Definitely, this will boost his work and smooth his business operations. His future dreams are to be able to take bigger projects, and little by little, grow as a businessman in his domain.
