A loan of $800 helped increase his shop’s inventory of coffee, tea, milk and tobacco.


Hussein's story

Hussein is a 42-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and three children, attending school. He is the main income source of the family. He has owned a café since 2011. He provides his customers with delicious coffee and other hot drinks, fruits and “Narguileh”, a traditional Lebanese waterpipe or hookah.

With his loan requested from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, he will increase his shop’s inventory of coffee, tea, milk and tobacco so that he can serve more customers and therefore earn higher income. This is his first Kiva loan, and Hussein is very excited to receive it as he is sure that it will impact positively on his business.
