Ten years ago he acquired a van with which he used to run a transportation business driving students. He cooperates financially with his wife who works at a local school to live in good conditions. With his youth loan requested from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, Sleiman will repair his van to secure and ease his transportation business. This is his first Kiva loan, and he hopes to be able to improve his business as well as the family’s financial situation.

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. 

Important Information
