Like most married men, Hussein works hard to do his best for his wife and little kid. Hussein is a hard working 27-year-old owner of a small restaurant in Bint Jbeil, where he has served fast food since 2008. His food is tasty according to most of his clients. He is a man who seeks perfection and customer service is his major success point.

Hussein is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, for the third time in order to build a brick tent in front of his restaurant to provide more space and increase the number of customers attending. He has been a good standing borrower and hopes to open a big famous restaurant in the future.
