A loan of $1,500 helped to perform the needed maintenance on his cars before selling them.


Abbas's story

Abbas is a 29-year-old Lebanese man living with his wife and three young children who all attend school. His is the main source of income for the family. In 2007, he decided to get involved in the car trading industry. Due to his strong negotiation skills and friendly personality, he was able to succeed in this domain. But his income barely covers the high cost of living--that is why he started to also work in a local company to earn an extra income. Today, he is requesting a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l, to perform the needed maintenance on his cars before selling them. He needs to make the cars safe. Abbas is very optimistic and hoping to open his own car showroom in the near future.
