Husein is a 21-year-old single man who has been making furniture since eight years ago in order to support his six other family members, for whom he is responsible.

He was only 13 years old when he quit his intermediate class and started working for his own and his family's living. Husein has a very good reputation and special talent in his specialty, painting furniture.

Today, he is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy new tools for his business. These tools will help him to develop his business and finish requested work in a short period of time and with excellent quality.

He hopes to keep on developing his work and expanding his business to keep his family members and customers satisfied.
