Samar is a 20-year-old Lebanese single woman. She is living with her parents and three siblings. She is still quite young, but she has proven to be a successful entrepreneur with her amusement shop. She has owned and run this business for the past two years. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase sweets, hubble-bubbles (water pipes) etc. She is intent on further expanding her business and adding a small corner where customers can visit her shop not only to play but also to chill out and have a good time. She is positive about her business prospects and hopes to be able to open a new branch of her shop in the coming years.
