As a result of the increase in living costs and the tough life in the Palestinian refugee camp, Nimer is suffering from a limited income that is not enough anymore to cover his eight children's expenses. Thus, he requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to increase his business merchandise with necessary coffee shop needs. He established the shop in July 2013. He will purchase items such as coffee, sugar and cups.
Nimer is trying to improve his financial situation to plan a better future for his kids.
