Mahdi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to open his own private tutoring institute in order to be able to attract more students and increase his income.


Mahdi's story

Mahdi is a 22-year-old single Lebanese young man. He has been working as a private tutor since 2016 and benefits from a limited income to cover his daily living expenses.

Mahdi loves his job - he has a passion for children and would like to expand his business. For this reason, he is acquiring a youth loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to open his own private tutoring institute in order to be able to attract more students and increase his income.

The passionate young man wishes success in his new business and hopes to improve his living conditions.
