Abbas is a 19-year-old single man living in Lebanon. He and his parents and two siblings make a cooperative and united family. His father is the main income provider for the family. One of Abbas’s greatest dreams is to continue his education until graduation, so that he can start his own business and bring additional income to the family.

Abbas has been working for a local company. Through his job, he will be able to pay the rest of his study fees. Even still, he finds it difficult to stand on his own. That’s why he asks today to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. The loan will help him achieve a good educational level and even pursue higher degrees. With this opportunity, he will start his own business and no doubt achieve a new and better way of living.
