Mahmoud is a 29-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married and living with his wife and two school-aged children. In order to live properly and be able to pay his children’s study fees, Mahmoud works hard and non-stop. He’s an independent constructor specializing in floor covering and has been working in this domain since 2007.

Today, Mahmoud is asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase construction tools for his business. He notes that this will facilitate his work and let him take more projects without facing problems. In the future, he plans to renew his tools and take bigger projects.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources. 

Important Information
