Hussein's story

Hussein is a 52-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon, with his wife and their three children. He has owned a grocery store since 2004, where he sells candies, canned food, home cleaning products, etc. Hussein requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase merchandise for his store. He has been a microcredit client for five years now and has always paid on time. His previous loans helped him improve his business by diversifying his merchandise and offering more products.

Hussein is successful in his work because he opens early in the morning and closes late in the evening. His customers are friends, neighbors, and traders. When he first started his business, he didn’t have enough cash to purchase a lot of merchandise, and had difficulty finding the proper place to open his store. Hussein started his business because he has experience in trading. In future, he plans to improve his store further.
