Tarek's story

Tarek is a 48-year-old married Syrian refugee father of three children. He is employed in a company where he benefits from a fixed monthly salary. He is a sacrificing father who does whatever it takes to provide his family a decent life. He fled to Lebanon in 2014 with his family seeking a secure environment and stable working conditions in hopes of being able to start a new life.

Tarek is acquiring a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for the clearing expenses of some of his official papers. This persistent father hopes to stay capable of supporting his family's needs.
