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

A loan helped to add the loan amount to his savings to reconstruct his house in Syria.

Fidaa's story

Greetings again from a loyal and ambitious man named Fidaa! He is 24 years old, a Syrian single man who left his country due to war and came to Lebanon searching to improve the living conditions for his family in Syria. He lives alone in a rented house located in Chouf. He is still working in a restaurant in order to improve his standard of living and help his family with their household expenses.

For the second time, Fidaa is asking for a loan from IBDAA, a Kiva partner. He still needs to add the loan amount to his saving to reconstruct his house in Syria, his native country, as it was destroyed during the war.

Fidaa is the same energetic and humble man full of hope and good manners. He is an upbeat man who has an amazing reputation among staff and customers.
