Sobhi applied for his first loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy necessary tools for his business. He might also use part of the loan to finish building his dream house to get married soon. His house isn't too big since he is Palestinian, and the only place he can build it is in the Palestinian camp where he already lives. Sobhi is a hard worker who dreams of a bright future for himself and his family. He doesn't rest because he wants to expand his business and increase his income.
