Khaled wants to make his house better, so is asking Ryada for this loan to pave the walls and the ground of his house. This loan will improve the house and make it better, which will enable the family to live in it with more psychological comfort.

The loan will help Khaled to take a step forward because he has a shortage of money. He 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.
