Hussein is a 20-year-old Lebanese man. He’s single, living with his father and sibling. With the support of his father, he is working hard to be able to cover the family's expenses.

Hussein began working as a plumber two years ago, and he has great experience in this field. His customers are increasing because of his low prices and professional work, as compared to others. He keeps on working very hard in order to maintain his family’s financial status at a good level.

Today, he is requesting to a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his plumbing tools and purchase a generator for his business. He earns a barely fair income, and he estimates that the loan will help him to increase his profits by 15%. One of his greatest dreams is to get married and have children; he’s eager to amplify his income so he can accrue the necessary savings for his wedding.
