Noureddin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy marketing materials to grow my business and to give my family a better life.

Noureddin's story

My name is Noor and I come from the first capital city in the world, Damascus. My family arrived in Utah in 2015 and this is now my country and community. My wife jokes my blood is now of Utah, instead of Syrian. We have more family and friends here now than we had in Syria and I think that is because of the great community here. I have been a chef for 35 years and ran one of the most popular restaurants in Damascus - I really do love community and like to create that community using food and music. Family is important to me as well and I have a very special family. My wife cares for all five our children- three have disabilities. I love to give back to the community, through food, and look forward to growing my business to give my family a better life. I hope in the future to open my restaurant and share my food with everyone in all Utah communities.
