Abbas is a Lebanese engaged man; he’s 22 years old and is really attached to his parents and siblings.

Working together, Abbas and his father were able to cover their heavy expenses in order to live a respectable life. Abbas started his business at an early age. He had to work really hard to prove that he’s a necessary support for his family. Abbas has been working in repairing the wheels of cars in his own garage, and has gained a fair number of customers asking for his services.

Today, he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to buy new mechanic tools and machines for his business so he can respond rapidly to his clients’ problems.

He believes that acting properly is really essential to attract more customers.

In the future, he plans to sell cars spare parts as well.
