Rabih's story

Rabih is a 27-year-old married man and the father of two children.

He works in the construction business and has specialized in cement work since 2000. He was only 15 years old when he started doing this kind of work, whereas he was even younger when he used to work in car body repair to help his family make their living.

Just like every Palestinian living in Lebanon, they don't have a lot of working choices especially inside the camp, so in order to improve his family's living conditions, Rabih started working in repairing car bodies from home in a small place next to his house. To improve this job, Rabih applied for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy the necessary machines and tools required for this business.

He is working hard to provide his children and family with the best education and living conditions possible. He hopes to open his own car repair shop to expand his work place and increase his income.
