Sameer's story

Sameer is a young man aged 28 years old and married with four children. His wife doesn't work, so his business is the only source of income for the family.

Sameer finished his ninth grade but didn't continue his studies because his father died. Instead, he started as a worker in Israel but, after the second intifada where no worker was allowed to enter Israel, Sameer thought of having his own business. So he started cleaning carpets and houses.

Sameer needs this loan to buy some cleaning materials. He appears in the photo while cleaning carpets.
