Hussein is a 20-year-old single man. He lives with his parents and two siblings. Despite his young age, Hussein is obliged to work continually as he is responsible after his father for covering his family expenses and responding to their needs.

He started his business in 2008 when he opened his own shoe shop. He provides his customers with good quality products at fair prices. He is satisfied with what he has attained so far, even though he wishes to enhance his way of living the most.

That’s the reason of why he’s asking today for a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new collection of shoes. In the near future, Hussein wishes to open other branches and maybe hire new employees to help him achieve work tasks and therefore earn higher income.
