Habib has worked as a van driver since 2000, transporting students to their desired locations. He is a trustful and kind man. Habib has been able to attract a wide range of clients in a short period of time. In order to afford the high costs of living and meeting his family's needs, Habib has been obliged to work continually.

Habib is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to perform needed maintenance on his van in order to make his transportation easier and safer.
