Eyad is a Palestinian refugee who was born and lives in Lebanon. He is a hard worker who is living and working in a Palestinian camp. Working in a camp is a big challenge, since any business is limited by the same number of customers. So he has to be creative to increase his income and develop his living.
For this reason, and through Eyad's previously acquired loans from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, he established an additional business which targets different types of customers. He opened an Internet cafe, and it is going on just fine.
Today, Eyad is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. He will use this to increase his business merchandise with a special released spring collection with special encouraging prices. This will attract more customers and develop his business.
Eyad hopes that he'll stay capable of expanding his businesses, increasing his income, and developing his family's socioeconomic situation.
