Hasan is a 29-year-old man. He’s single and lives in Lebanon with his parents and six siblings. Two of them are working in addition to their father who is considered the main income provider for the family. Despite his age, Hasan is obliged to work continually as he thinks of having his own family in the future. He has been working in the construction field since 2008. He’s specialized in floor covering 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; which is the reason why he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva's Partner Vitas s.a.l. He will use the loan to improve his business by purchasing new construction tools which will help him continue to offer the best quality work. In the near future, Hasan plans to take added loans to open his own paves shop. He works really hard to achieve his goals.
