This is Hamza, a 27-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to Alaa, an adorable young lady and the mother of his small child.

Hamzah is his family’s only support; they do depend on him after suffering from a bad financial situation. He decided to have his own business a few years ago. In that way he will be able to increase his income and therefore cover the family's expenses. So he opened a football playground in his own land. He benefits from its rental fees to carry on his life in a proper way.

Today, he has the intention to borrow a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to be able to purchase an electrical generator. He confirms that this will allow him to rent the football playground at night as well. He is sure that with a little bit of care, he can better develop his business and -- the most important thing -- increase his earnings.
