Saiid is a 27-year-old Lebanese man. He’s single and living with his parents and two siblings. His father is the one responsible for them, and the whole family is really thankful for what he did so far and will be going to do.

Saiid decided to start his own work as a photographer in 2008 and has opened his own studio. He’s talented and works with high professionalism. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase a new camera for his work in order to increase his sales, and thus, his revenues. In the future, he plans to open his own photography center.
