Abbas is a 23-year-old single man living with his parents and five siblings. His father is considered as the main income provider of the family. But since there are heavy expenses to cover, Abbas decided to start working at a very young age to provide his family with extra financial support. His job consists in buying wood for heating and reselling it to customers from his town. Today, he is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase more wood to sell. He notes that this business generates him good profits; and in the future, he plans to further expand his work and open his own business.
