Raed is a friendly and kind young man. He’s 24 years old. He’s single, living with his parents and one working sibling. A few years ago, Raed started to manage the family expenses supporting his father. And since he noticed that his income did not satisfy their needs, he decided to launch a clothing business with the small amount of money he already had. He sells a wide variety of men's clothes, from which he earns a fair amount of money daily. To better develop his work, he’s requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. He will use the loan to buy more merchandise for his business, such as pants, t-shirts and other items. This will allow him to offer a greater variety of products and thus improve his income. Raed wishes to open other branches as soon as possible.
