Kassem's story

Kassem is a 29-year-old married man, and the father of one child. He has been working in the construction business specializing in house painting for the past eight years. In 2007, he started working on his own to increase his income and develop his living. Kassem is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy new released tools for his business in addition to new colors and types of paint. This loan will help him to develop his business and increase his income. His experience in this field has provided him with customers' trust and support; that's why he has to keep his business updated to keep on replying to his customers' needs. He hopes to provide his child with the best education, since due to his parent's financial situation he didn't have the chance to study the major of his choice.
