Hussein is a 27-year-old single man who has worked as a barber for 12 years. He is his family’s sole breadwinner. He is responsible for the living expenses of three members of his family. For this reason, he works hard and puts substantial effort into continuing to improve his business.

In April 2012, he opened his current shop and is working hard to develop it. Because his income is low compared to his high expenses, Hussein can’t save enough cash to improve and develop his business. For this reason, he is acquiring a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase his business capital with special gels, beauty supplies and necessary tools for developing his business.

He hopes that, through this loan, he will be able to increase his income which will help him to expand his workplace.
