Yehya's story

Yehya is a hardworking Palestinian refugee who is striving to maintain his own expenses and support his parents with their basic daily living needs. The 18-years-old young man is working in construction and thinking of running his own business in clothes retail.

For this reason, he is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to open his own clothing store and to buy all the needs for the store and a colorful collection of clothes.

The ambitious young man wishes to succeed in his new business to build a prosperous future where he can develop the store into a mall.
