Leon is a 28-year-old man from Lebanon. He’s single and lives with his parents and one working sibling. His father is the one responsible for their needs and covering the house expenditures. One of Leon’s greatest dreams is to be able to take some responsibilities off of his father by earning a good income. He has been working independently. He sells electrical generators upon clients’ requests. Through his job, he will be able to enhance his family’s life and get married as he has always dreamed of. To help him achieve his goals, he is requesting a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the needed spare parts for the generators he owns. With this opportunity, he will improve his business and therefore boost his revenues.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources. 

Important Information
