Bashir is a Lebanese single man. He is 26 years old. He is living with his one parent and four siblings who are all working. He seeks to manage his family’s life with the cooperation of his siblings. This is the reason why they are all working really hard to afford heavy life expenses. Four years ago, Bashir started his independent business. He has opened a cafe in his town where he sells popcorn, chocolate, soft drinks and of course coffee. He has his own and loyal customers who always meet at his place to have fun and enjoy their time.

With his requested youth loan of Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l he will be able to purchase a new espresso machine for his café in addition to many other goods. This will increase the number of his customers and most probably his revenues. One of his greatest dreams is to collect money and make needed savings, especially if he might get married in the near future.
