Husein is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to renew his shop's tools, machines and furniture that he established in 2004. He is a hard worker with a good reputation. This is his second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with a good standing in his paying back history. His previous loan was invested in improving the shop's decorations and doing necessary maintenance, which resulted in a very impressive impact on customers.

He hopes to expand his working areas in the future, through meeting customers' needs and developing a special facial department.
