Fakhry is a 23-year-old Lebanese man. He’s single and living with his parents and only one working sibling. His father is working under pressure and seeking to offer them a respectable way of living.

Unlike other people in his age, Fakhry was ready to take responsibilities and start his own business. He has been working as cellphone and recharge cards trader since 2008. In order to increase his sales and develop his business, he decided to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional cellphones and recharge cards. In the future, he plans to open his own cellphone shop.
