Alaa's story

Alaa is a 22-year-old married Syrian refugee. He has worked in a bakery shop, earning a limited monthly salary, since 2013. Alaa left his hometown in Syria due to war circumstances and he moved to Lebanon five years ago seeking better living conditions.

Alaa is acquiring a Syrian refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to start his own business raising and selling birds. This business will help him to increase his income.

Alaa wishes to increase his income more and more in the future to provide his family with better living conditions.
