Youssef's story

Youssef is a Lebanese single man. He’s 22 years old, living alone with his father, the main income provider of the family. They are really attached to each other and Youssef seeks to take some responsibilities off of his father. Cooperating together, Youssef and his father were capable to cover their heavy expenses in order to live a respectable life.

Youssef started his business as a car mechanic. He had to work really hard to prove that he’s a necessary support for his father. He has gained a fair number of customers asking for his services. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to buy added mechanic's tools for his business in order to respond rapidly to his clients’ problems. He believes that acting properly is really essential to attract added customers. In the future, he’s planning to enlarge his garage and receive more clients.
