Wissam's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for renovating his house expenses to make it a healthier place for his only child inside the camp before winter.
Wissam is a 38-year-old married father of one child and a Palestinian refugee who lives in a Palestinian refugee camp. Due to the low social and financial situations of Palestinians in Lebanon, he left school at early age and started working in the construction field, specializing in aluminum detailing and installing, to cover the needs and expenses of his family. Although he is working hard to develop his business, his income is still not enough to cover any additional expenses. Thus, today he is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua ,to pay for renovating his house expenses to make it a healthier place inside the camp before winter season for his only child. Wissma hopes to keep on expanding his business to increase his income and provide his family with decent living conditions.
