Hussein is a 27-year-old Lebanese married man. He’s living with his wife and one school-aged child. He’s the main income provider for his family and he takes care of them. Hussein opened his paint shop in 2006 where he sells all types of paints in addition to some industrial equipment.

Today, he has the intention of borrowing a youth loan of $2,600 from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase a quantity of paints and other supplies for his shop. In that way, he will be able to respond rapidly to his customers' demands and therefore get higher returns.

In the future, he plans to work as a wholesaler and sell paints to the neighboring shops.
