Abass
Abass is 58 years old, and he lives in the Askar camp at Nablus.

Askar is a Palestinian refugee camp. It is located on the outskirts of the West Bank city of Nablus and was established in 1950 on 209 dunums of land. In 1960 the camp was expanded onto a further 90 dumums. Abass lives with his wife and six sons, one of them still in primary school.

Abass works in the construction sector, which helped him to build his house. He has asked Ryada for this loan to repair his house, because he has a shortage of money. He needs to install doors for the closet in the kitchen and extend the electricity.

Abass is very grateful to everyone who helps him.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Ryada’s efforts to reach areas of the West Bank which are underserved due to the political situation. Funds will be used to finance housing improvements in refugee camps and Areas B and C of the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority currently has limited to no authority in these areas, making it very difficult for individuals to acquire official construction and building permits. Without the necessary documentation, banks are unlikely to lend to these individuals. By supporting this loan, you are helping individuals overcome this challenge so that they can improve their living conditions.

Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
