Samir is a 19-year-old Lebanese single man who lives with his parents and three siblings. His father works hard to enhance his family and children’s way of living. In order to help his father, Samir started his own business as an event organizer two years ago. He attends weddings, parties and any kind of events upon customers’ requests.

Today, he wants to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new sound system equipment. This loan will improve his work and allow him to attend more and bigger events. In the future, he plans to open his own events-organizing company.
