Khoder is a 24-year-old Lebanese single man living with one parent.

One year ago, he was able to open his own shop where he sells women's clothes. He is well known for top-quality clothes and distinguished from other traders by offering a traditional item calling “Aabaya.” He has employed a saleswoman whose responsibility is welcoming customers and helping them choose their desired styles.

Today, Khoder is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase high-quality products at low prices. He’s certain that the loan will help him diversify his merchandise selection, which will attract more customers and therefore increase his business sales and thus his income.

In the future, he is hoping to also sell shoes at his store.
