Youssef's story

Youssef is a 39-year-old divorced man and the father of three children. He has been working as a tailor since 21 years ago. In 1992, he started his own business. Youssef is a professional tailor; his long experience gave him customers’ trust and support. Youssef is Syrian, but it's been a long time since he came and lived in Lebanon. He started his own business, made his own family and settled. He is well known for his professionalism in work in addition to his good reputation and excellent customer service. Youssef works hard to satisfy his family and to provide them with everything they might need. To improve his living, he must keep on supporting his business with the necessary needs. That's why he applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary tools, needles, buttons, thread and textiles. He is looking forward to expanding his business and introducing his customers to new products through opening his own atelier in the future. Youssef puts so much effort into improving his business as much as he can to please his beloved children. He takes good care of them, especially that he takes the role of the mother and the father at the same time. He hopes to keep on providing them with all their needs, especially the love and caring they need.
