A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase hubble-bubble (traditional Lebanese tobacco) equipment.


Mahdi's story

Mahdi is a 26-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and three siblings. Two of them are working. He is supporting his father who is the main source of income for the family. He has owned a hubble-bubble shop since 2010, a Lebanese traditional tobacco. Most of his work depends on delivery. People ask for a hubble-bubble to enjoy their day instead of visiting a café or a restaurant. Today, he is looking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to increase his inventory of hubble-bubble equipment, not to forget the charcoal and all related products. In the future, he plans to borrow another Kiva loan so he can expand his business and increase his earnings.
