Badran's story

Badran is a 43-year-old refugee married man, living with his wife and three adorable children in a village near Hebron, West Bank. He has a small store for selling fruits and vegetables. It is the only source of income for the family. He is an enthusiastic and active man, full of hope and energy. He is a hard worker, serving his family by facing life's challenges. He turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan for the installation of shelves and new decor for the shop. This will enhance his work and improve his family's living standards. He thanks all the Kiva lenders for their help in advance.
