Hasan is a 30-year-old Lebanese man who is single.

He has owned a shop since 2000 where he trades in charcoal. He sells his products to multiple dealers and merchants. His shop is situated in the same town where he lives, and people from his community also visit him to buy charcoal from him.

Today he looks forward to borrowing a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase charcoal in large quantity.

Hasan states that the loan will impact positively on his career, and he is sure that his sales revenues will be elevated.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources.
