Abbas's story

Abbas is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and two siblings, one of whom is working.

In 2006, in order to supplement the family’s income, he decided to start his own work as a farmer. He learned this profession from his father who until now was considered their main income provider. His job consists of cultivating seasonal fruits and vegetables. He works on his own land and knows very well how to take care of his harvestings.

Today he is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the required agricultural tools and supplies, seeds and fertilizers. He states that the loan will certainly help him increase his business productivity by a fair percentage, which will return higher profits. In the future, he plans to take more Kiva loans and expand his lands with a wider variety of fruits and vegetables.
