A loan helped to send money to his wife in Syria, so she can increase her merchandise and expand her detergent-selling business.


Afif's story

Afif is a 51-year-old, married Syrian refugee living in Lebanon. He was forced to leave his home country, Syria, and look for a place where he can find a job to provide for his family. His family consists of his beloved wife and his three children.

Afif is a hard worker who tries his best to cover all his family's expenses. He works as a construction worker and has a cumulative 30 years of experience.

Today, Afif is requesting a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua on behalf of his wife in Syria to increase her merchandise and expand her business as she works in selling detergents. Afif hopes to be able to return back to Syria when his wife's business flourishes and becomes sufficient for providing for the family. He is looking forward to start working for his own sake and start his own business in the future.


This loan is special because:

It gives opportunity to Syrian refugees who have fled the war in Syria.
