Raed's story

Raed is an energetic and modest 24-year-old. He was born in Syria but now lives with his wife in an owned apartment located in the Alley area of Lebanon.

Raed works as a nurse in order to help his wife with household expenses and to improve their standard of living. He is trying hard to increase his income. For the first time, Raed is asking for a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner, that he will use to to repair and maintain his car.

Raed is a reputable guy who is loved by everyone in the area. He says thanks for your support!
