Mohammad's story

Mohammad is a 19-year-old single Palestinian guy. He lives in the Saida area with his family in a rented apartment in a camp for Palestinian refugees. He is an independent person and a hard worker, looking forward to improving his quality of life. He started working at an early age due to his financial situation. He has worked as an employee and has a limited income.

For the first time, he is asking for a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner in Lebanon, to repair his car and maintain it to improve his standard of living. He always looks to facilitate his lifestyle financially and socially.

He is an enthusiastic guy, aiming to boost his income. He is well known in the area, having a good reputation among his clients and in his neighborhood. He is smart, has good manners, and is loved by everyone in his vicinity.

He thanks you for your support!
