He has been working in the construction business since 18 years ago. He specializes in painting houses. In 1998, he started working on his own and made his own clients’ capital.
He is well known in his region through his good work and customers' recommendations. Samir had one problem he is willing to fix. He needs a car to use during his work for transporting his tools and requested machines, if available, from one project to another, instead of paying someone for transportation fees.
That's why he is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. He will buy the car, which will make his business easier and more productive. He hopes that through this car, he will expand his working area.
