Samir's story

Samir is a 28-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and only child. He is the main income source for the family. He has owned a small shop since 2010 where he provides customers with Nescafe and Hubble-Bubble (hookah).

In parallel, he started working at a local company a year ago. In Lebanon, it’s very common to have multiple jobs to afford the high costs of living. With his youth loan requested from Kiva's partner Vitas s.a.l, he will purchase Hubble-Bubble products and supplies.

In the future, he plans to turn his shop into a small restaurant and serve different plates and delicious ones.
