Hamza is a 24-year-old single man who has been working in transportation since a year ago. He is well known in his region for his good reputation and manners. He works on providing transportation services to his region’s citizens, to and from schools and businesses among nearby villages.

Hamza is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to do necessary maintenance on his van's body.

This loan will improve his business, will attract more customers to a newly shaped van, and will please his present customers.

He is excited about this loan; he will start taking touristic visits around Lebanon, but as he states, the van has to look good to take certain tours abroad. He hopes to keep on improving his business as much as he can in a well managed way.
