Zakariya is a 20-year-old man. He is single and lives in Lebanon with his parents and four siblings. Two of them are working in addition to their father, who is considered the main income provider for the family.

Despite his young age, Zakariya is obliged to work continually, as he wishes to have his own family and children, plus he wishes to support his family as much as he possibly can.

Zakariya has been working in the construction field since 2010. He specializes in gypsum decorations and has gained a fair number of clients asking for his services. Regardless of being satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial situation. That is the reason why he is asking today for a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. He will use the loan to improve his business by purchasing a new car, as he plans to take on bigger projects all over the surrounding areas.

In the near future, he plans to take additional loans to open his own gypsum boards shop. This is how he works really hard to achieve his goals.
