Taha is a 24-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and three siblings, one of whom is working. His father, who has been serving in the Lebanese army, takes care of the family. In order to help him, Taha decided to work independently as a plumber; he has been doing this since 2009.

Taha is brave and highly professional. Today, he wants to borrow a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional plumbing tools for his new projects. He notes that this will help him carry on his work in a proper way. In the future, he plans to open his own plumbing tools shop.
