Samir is a 35-year-old married man and the father of one child. He has been manufacturing furniture since 1992. Samir was only 15 years old when he started working to help his parents in making their living and covering his expenses.

His work is going on just fine, but he always needs an external push to be able to fulfill unexpected additional requests. His special wide experience and good reputation pushes him to work harder to expand and improve his business. Samir is applying for a loan from Kiva parnter Al Majmoua in order to buy extra wood necessary for a new project he is working on.

This is Samir's sixth loan cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. He is in good standing and has a good history of paying loans back. With his previous loans, he was capable of renewing some of his tools and improving his living. He hopes that one day, he will open his own special showroom to attract new customers.
