A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase cellular phones and prepaid telephone cards.


Joseph's story

Joseph is a 26-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and one sibling. He has owned a mobile phone shop since 2009 in which he sells mobile phones as well as rechargeable cards. Today, he is requesting to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase cellular phones and prepaid telephone cards. The majority of mobile phone users in Lebanon purchase these cards; that’s the reason why Joseph seeks to acquire these purchases so as to be able to increase his sales by a large percentage. This is Joseph's first Kiva loan and he is very optimistic about what he will attain monetarily after getting it. In the future, he is looking to further expand his business and increase its capital.
