Wissam is a 24-year-old single man, who has been working in construction since 2007. He specializes in Gibson work - which is dealing with internal decoration.

Wissam is a very talented person in his field, and is recommended by most of his customers. He is working on developing and expanding his own business, instead of being employed by someone else. For this reason, he is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua, to buy necessary newly released tools and machinery that are highly requested for his business development.

He is very anxious about this loan, since it is his first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower. He will work hard, and with his future expected profits, he will expand his working region by recruiting others to help him in replying to increasing customers' needs, and increasing his tools.

At the beginning, he had obstacles in developing his career, because he had no car to make his transportation easier. But today everything is becoming easier and solved in a well managed way. He hopes to open his own company in the future.
