Rami is a 27-year-old single man. He has been working as an electrician since 10 years to help his family improve their living. Rami finished only his intermediate studies and had to start working early to support family income.

Education is very important to him; that's why he is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to pay for his brother's university fees and to make sure that his brother will accomplish what he could not accomplish himself.

This is his first cycle as Al Majmoua borrower, and he hopes that it will have a positive impact on both his brother's studies and his business by buying necessary tools such as an upgraded compressor and new tools to facilitate his work.

He hopes to improve his business with the new tools.
