A loan of $2,100 helped to purchase the needed tools to be able to perform the needed maintenance on the cars he rents.


Alaa's story

Alaa is a 20-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and two siblings, one who is working. They all depend on the father, who is the main source of income for them. Despite his young age, Alaa has opened his own car rental shop in 2009 and has the ambition to grow in this domain. He works on a free-lance basis. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan of $2,100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase the needed tools to be able to perform the needed maintenance on the cars he rents. This will allow him continue his work in a proper way without facing problems. In the future, he plans to open his own car showroom.
