Yazan's story

Yazan is a 32-year-old refugee married man, living with his family in a village near Ramallah, West Bank. He works in blacksmithing, which 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 to buy iron and machines that are needed for his work. This will enhance his work and improve his family's living standard. He thanks all the Kiva lenders for their help in advance.
