A loan of $1,500 helped to complete construction on his house before his upcoming wedding.


Sami's story

Sami is a 24-year-old Palestinian who lives in a refugee camp. Eight years ago he started selling fish. He learned this profession from his father, who used to have a fish selling business of his own and was well trained to tell the difference between different kinds of fish. He has received a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua in order to complete construction on his house before his upcoming wedding. Sami hopes to build a suitable home within the camp, so that he and his wife can raise a happy and healthy family despite the poor economic conditions in the area.
