Husein is a 29-year-old, married man who established his own barber shop to start developing his career path ten years ago. Prior to owning his own shop he was employed for five consecutive years in this domain to acquire special talents and customers' trust. Husein left school during elementary, thus for this reason he had to work early to acquire a profession that will help him make his living. Husein is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua in order to decorate his shop to attract new customers and develop his business. This will be his second loan cycle; his previous loan was invested to pay for his wedding expenses. He hopes to keep on developing his business through updating his talents and workplace upon customers' requests.
