Hussein is a 26-year-old man. He’s married to Zahra, a lovely wife and the mother of his only child. She is a great support to him, especially when he finds it hard to cover the usual family expenses.

Hussein owns a cattle farm in his town where he raises cattle from which he obtains dairy products to sell. He has been involved in this domain for many years and knows very well how to manage his work in a good way. He’s really good in his domain and looks forward to developing his business as best he can. In parallel, he is an employee at the municipality.

For this reason, he wants to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase additional cattle and a fair quantity of their food for the coming winter. Because of his good products, Hussein is thinking of opening a small shop where he could sell all kinds of dairy products.
