Hassan is a 22-year-old single man who is the sole breadwinner for two members of his family. Hassan has a mobile snack truck which he moves from one village to another to provide them with the special sandwiches he offers with a special taste and encouraging prices. He started this business in 2010, and he is developing it gradually in a well managed way to keep it attracting different types of customers.

Hassan has also been employed earlier in a company because he has to provide his family members with the necessary standard of living and their needs are increasing, so he decided to take this additional income business to make sure that he meets his family's requests.

Today he is acquiring a Youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua because he needs to buy the necessary raw materials to develop his business with special prices.

He hopes to keep on developing his business and will work hard to expand it by buying a wider car in the future and diversifying his products with a new released menu.
