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

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables to sell in the Palestinian refugee camp in order to earn an income.

Ahmed's story

Ahmed is a Palestinian refugee. His business is in fruits and vegetables. He worked for his uncle in the beginning, then he chose to become independent. He is now a street vendor and wishes to grow. He is young and energetic. His job requires this energy. He has to call out to the people passing on the street to come and buy from him. Then he has to get the fruits and vegetables from the main market to his cart. It is all worthwhile when he goes home with enough for food and rent. A loan will help him add to the variety of fruits and vegetables that he has.
