Muhammad's story

Muhammad is a 31-year-old refugee, who is married and living with his wife and three adorable kids in a village near Bethlehem, West Bank. He works in a hotel, and he also works in selling souvenirs for the tourists in order to enhance his family's living standards. He is an enthusiastic and active man, who is full of hope and energy. He is a hard worker, serving his family by facing life's challenges.

He turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy more souvenirs for his work. This will increase his sales and improve his family's living standards. He thanks all the Kiva lenders for their help in advance.
