Samer is special in his work because he knows how to treat his client and offers good quality shoes. His clients are people from his region, but mainly his neighbors and friends. When he first started his business, he didn’t have enough cash to expand his stock; therefore, thanks to his previous loans, he was able to expand and diversify his merchandise. Samer decided on this business because he wanted to have independent work. In the future, he plans to keep on improving his business by always providing his clients with the best merchandise.
