Hussein is a 30-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife. He has owned a car repair shop since 2009 and has worked for 10 years in the same domain. His job consists in changing oil for cars.

With his requested youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, Hussein will increase his shop’s inventory of mechanical tools and supplies such as oil, screwdrivers, hammers, etc. He took advantage of a previous Kiva loan and was very satisfied with the results, especially that he was able to remarkably expand his business and get higher income. In the future, he plans to open a new branch of his shop where he will start car spare parts sales in addition to his area of expertise.
