Youssef's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase seeds and plastic covers for the tents.
Youssef is a 44-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and eight children. He is the only income provider of his family. He has been working in the agricultural field for almost 18 years and in 2000, he started to work independently on his own farm. He grows a wide variety of vegetables using large plastic tents. His products are sold to multiple local markets. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase seeds to increase his business productivity. He will also purchase new plastic covers for the tents. In the future, he plans to further expand his business and start cultivating exotic fruits.
