Fawzi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a car of his own for taxi work, instead of renting one.

Fawzi's story

Fawzi is a 49-year-old married Syrian refugee. He is a father with four children. They fled to Lebanon many years ago, seeking a secure environment and stable working conditions.

Fawzi works as a taxi driver using a rented car, and he has a limited daily income. Fawzi always seeks to improve his family's living conditions, and he tries his best to overcome life's difficulties.

For this reason, he is requesting a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, to buy a car of his own for work, instead of renting one.

Fawzi wishes a healthy, happy life for his family and hopes to be able to go back to his hometown one day.
