Hussein's story

Hussein is a 25-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and three siblings, two of whom are working. His father is the one taking care of the family and covering their living costs. Hussein decided to start his own business as a blacksmith in 2009, after fifteen years of experience in this field. Now he has a fair number of customers asking for his services.

Today, he’s in need of borrowing a youth loan of $1,600 from the Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase added products for his business, such as metal. This will help him continue his work in a proper way and respond rapidly to his customers’ demands. In the future, he plans to expand his business in order to earn a higher income.
