Hussein's story

Hussein is a thirty-one-year-old Syrian refugee, and a married father of two. He left his hometown in Syria seeking peaceful living conditions. Since 2012, he has earned a limited monthly salary by working in a garage, providing body work maintenance for cars.

He's acquiring a special Syrian refugee loan product in order to buy a car to help him travel from one place to another.

Hussein wishes to expand his business to increase his income and become more financially stable.
