With his father working and the support of his sibling, Yehya has capably managed the family household in order to improve their standard of living.

Yehya had many years of experience as a car mechanic before deciding to open his own garage. Because he wishes to further develop his business, Yehya is asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new scanner machine. This step will facilitate his business, allowing him to receive more clients who will be served rapidly. Yehya just started his career, so another Kiva loan will be a good way for him to expand his business and increase his earnings.
