Raafat's story

Raafat is a 43-year-old, married Syrian refugee, and a father of four children. Raafat only had the chance to reach the intermediate levels of education. As he had to financially support his family, he had to quit school and start working.

He works as a blacksmith to improve his income and living standards. He's applying for a Syrian refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua in order to pay his wife and kids residency permit fees. Raafat hopes to stay capable of developing his business and assure continuity for his family.
