Hasan is a 22-year-old Lebanese man who is single. He has been working in the construction field for more than eight years. He got involved in this type of business at a very young age in order to get extra financial support for the family.

Today, Hasan is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase construction equipment and, specifically, an electrical winch so his work can proceed as it should. Hasan has a part-timer helping him with the work. He plans to hire him as a full-timer at his earliest convenience as he has no doubt that he will achieve a significant expansion in his business and increase its capital after receiving the loan.
