Hassan is applying for his first loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to perform necessary maintenance on his rented car because it is his only source of income. Hassan is very excited for this loan since Al Majmoua is the only Lebanese NGO who supports the Palestinian refugees and because he has to make sure to keep his business going. Hassan can't afford to buy a car of his own, so he has to take good car of the available one. He hopes to buy his own car and a public driving plate in the future.
