A loan helped to pay for his wife's necessary medical surgery expenses that she had to undergo.


Diab's story

Diab is a 36-year-old, married Syrian refugee, and father of three children who is living in a poor area in Lebanon where there is a very limited access to most of the services. He has been running his own business painting houses since 10 years ago, benefiting from a limited income that covers his family’s basic needs.

He is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua, to pay for his wife's necessary medical surgery expenses that she had to undergo. This caring father wishes his wife a speedy recovery and hopes to develop his business to attract more customers and increase his income.
