A loan helped to buy a taxi and benefit from another income.


Abdallah's story

Abdallah is a 37-year-old married Palestinian refugee. He is a father with two children. He is the sole provider for his family. He runs his own food stall where he benefits from an income, but it does not cover all of his family's expenses.

Abdallah works hard for the sake of his family and to maintain a decent life for them, and he always seeks ways that could enable him to benefit from an additional source of income.

For this reason, Abdallah is requesting a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy a taxi and benefit from another income. Abdallah hopes to improve his family's living standards and to stay capable of supporting them.
