Tarek's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to send money back to his home country, to build a house for his family there.

Tarek's story

Tarek is a 36-year-old married Syrian refugee and a father of two. Tarek has been selling iron for a living for 11 years. He is a hard worker and an ambitious father who works day and night to fulfill his family's needs.

Tarek was forced to leave his home country and start from scratch in a foreign country because of war. Today, Tarek is applying for a special Syrian refugee loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, to send the money back to his country and build a house for his family, in the country where all his memories will always remain.

Tarek hopes that soon he, his family, and every refugee will return to their countries and live in peace and contentment.
