Yehia is a 25-year-old married man from Lebanon living with his wife. He has been working as a blacksmith since three years ago. To be able to afford the high costs of living and meet his family’s needs, Yehia is obliged to work very hard. Even though, he stated that his financials are barely enough.

So today, he is requesting to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to purchase tools and tackle needed to help him enhance his way of work.

Yehia is very positive about the future of his business and is willing to expand his work into other areas in the coming days.
