Jihad is 20 years old and lives in Gaza. His life conditions prevented him from completing his higher education, so Jihad operates a motorcycle transport business. He transports things for people from one place to another, and uses the motorcycle to sell things when he has good earnings that month.

He earns usually a monthly income of $581, which he uses to support himself and his Family.

He asked Ryada for this youth loan to repair his motorcycle and buy food stuff to sell as a street vendor; this will increase the number of clients and his income, which will help him improve the financial conditions of his family.

Jihad is very grateful to everyone who helps him achieve success in his business with this loan.
