Husein is a 19-year-old single man who has worked as a house painter since 2006. Husein didn't have the chance to continue his education; he stopped attending school during his elementary education.

His family's financial situation forced him to start working so early and quitting school. Today he is a hard worker, well known in his region for his commitments and the special quality of work provided. He also has two employees who help him meet additional customer needs.

Husein is having slight problems in his business that has to do with transportation. So he is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy a car (Renault Rapid or a small van) that will help him transport all his tools and his employees easily from one project they are working on to another.

This loan will help him facilitate his work a lot, making transportation easier and decreasing expenses.

As for Husein's future plans, he is working hard to stay capable of facing the wide competition around him by developing and providing special customer service.
