Kassem is a 24-year-old single man. He is living with his parents and three siblings, two of whom are working. His father is the main income provider for the family and works very hard to be able to handle the heavy life expenses.

Kassem has been involved in the construction field since 2007. He is well-known in his town and has gained a fair number of clients so far, despite his younger age. And today, he is requesting to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase needed construction tools for his business.

This will definitely allow Kassem to achieve his work competently and be able to present good-quality services to the clients. He works on a freelance basis, and hopes to take bigger projects and increase his earnings in the near future.
