Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is a 33-year-old refugee married man who lives with his wife and three adorable kids in Bethlehem, West Bank.

He works in the public sector, and he recently opened a store for selling spices, in order to enhance his income. He is an enthusiastic and active man, full of hope and energy. He is a hard worker, serving his family by facing life's challenges.

He turned to Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy supplies and raw materials for his store. This will enhance his work and improve his family's living standards. He thanks all the Kiva lenders for their help in advance.
