Youssef is a 39-year-old married father of two children who are enrolled in a private school. He has worked in performing necessary maintenance to washing machines, refrigerators, freezers and many other electric machines since fifteen years ago.

Youssef is a hard worker who provides his services to customers in several nearby regions to make sure he can increase his income and develop his family's living.

Today, Youssef is requesting a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for his children's increasing tuition fees, since his business income combined with his wife's can barely cover their family's needs.

Youssef hopes to stay capable of providing his children with the best education.
