George's story

George is a 32-year-old married Syrian refugee and a father of one child. He works in a beauty salon where he earns a fixed monthly salary to cover his family's daily living expenses. George is a striving and hardworking man who always seeks to improve his family's living conditions. He is acquiring a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy a car to facilitate his daily transportation. His previous loan was acquired for the same purpose but he had an accident with his old car and it got broken. George wishes continuity in his job and hopes to improve his family's living conditions.
