Hasan is a 24-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to Nada, a beautiful young woman. They have only one small child. Hasan wants to offer his family a respectable life. He works nonstop, on his own, to be able to cover their expenses. He has been working as a plumber for a few years. He’s very honest with his customers, and as a result they are loyal to him. His wife supports him in order to bring additional income to the family. Hasan is asking for a youth loan from Kiva Partner Vitas S.A.L. to renew his plumbing tools. This is his second Kiva loan, and he believes that it will allow him to start his new project properly. Hasan hopes to collect higher revenues and offer his family a very comfortable life.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under.

By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources.
