Youssef is a 60-year-old married man who has worked as a taxi driver for the past 30 years. He is a hard-working man who does his best for his family's living. Working as a taxi driver for this long period hasn't been easy, but he has to keep on because it is his only source of income.

To increase his business and income, Youssef is intending to buy a van through a loan for which he has applied for this reason from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to start a new business. He will start transporting students from/to school which is a good source of income, since he has people's trust in most of the region in which he lives. Youssef hopes to expand his business and employ a few employees to help him in the future.
