Fadel's story

Fadel is a 22-year-old man from Lebanon living with his parents and three siblings. He started his career at a very young age working as a mechanic. He works on a freelance basis serving customers whenever they face car damages. In addition, he has worked as a driver in a local company since 2011. In Lebanon, it is common at all levels of society for people to have multiple businesses. It is often not enough to have an office salary or small shop to cover the increasing costs of food, housing, and other family expenses.

Today, Fadel is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to open a car repair shop and purchase the needed mechanical supplies to be able to serve his customers well. He is very motivated to achieve his goals and he is sure that he will earn good profits and live in better conditions.
