Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is a 45-year-old, married Syrian refugee, and father of six children. He works in construction specializing in cement pasting where he benefits from a limited income.

Ibrahim fled to Lebanon with his family seeking a secure environment and stable working conditions. He is acquiring a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for his residency permit fees.
