Ashraf is a 24-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents at their modest house located in one of the beautiful Lebanese villages. Ashraf spent many years in solving home electricity issues, but he’s not the only one covering the family expenses: he has his father, who is considered the main income provider in the family.

Ashraf always wanted to better develop his business and improve his work, but until now he earns a barely fair income. For that reason he decided to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renew his electrical equipment and purchase needed items. He confirms that the loan will help him increase his sales and, thus, his income by 15%. And as Ashraf works independently, he wishes to have his own electrical equipment shop soon in order to keep on responding to client demand the best he possibly can.
