Jamil is a 30-year-old Lebanese man. He got engaged few years ago, and is waiting for the perfect time to get married and have his own family. He’s living now with his parents and one working sibling. Jamil's ambition is to grow up fast and better support his family. He opened a pharmacy in 2010 and has a fair number of clients. He is requesting a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to buy more medications to sell because this will allow him respond to his clients rapidly. In the future, he plans to enlarge his pharmacy and hire people to work with him.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources.
