Bassem's story

Bassem is a 48-year-old married Palestinian refugee father of four children. He works as a building contractor and earns a limited income that does not cover all of his family's needs. He fled to Lebanon seeking a secure environment and stable working conditions. Bassem is acquiring a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, to start a new business as a taxi driver.

Bassem hopes to stay capable of supporting his family and providing for their needs.
