A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase new plumbing tools and supplies.


Ismail's story

Ismail is a 22-year-old single Lebanese man. He was forced to work at a very young age to supplement the family's income since his relatives passed through bad and hard situations, and he had to do whatever was needed to help his family overcome that. He is a plumber who has worked on a freelance basis for the past seven years. To purchase new plumbing tools and supplies such as tubes, faucets, hammers, etc., Ismail is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. He says that these purchases will ease his operations and will even result in a better quality of repairs. In the future, he plans to be the owner of a proper plumbing shop.
