Imad is a Lebanese single man. He is 30 years old. He is living with his parents and two working siblings. His father seeks to manage the family’s life and cover their expenses. This is the reason why Imad started to work really hard to take some responsibilities off his father.

Five years ago, Imad started his independent business. He opened a coffee shop in his town. He has his own loyal customers who always meet at his place to have fun and enjoy their free time. With his requested youth loan from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l he will be able to renovate his coffee shop. This will increase the number of his customers and most probably his revenue. One of his greatest dreams is to save money and have his own family and children.
