A loan of $1,000 helped to buy the necessary tools to make Saj bread.


Abdullah's story

Abdullah is a 24-year-old single Palestinian man, who has been living and working in Saida with his family since he was born. Abdullah started working early to help his family in making their living. In April 2012, Abdullah opened his present bakery to improve his living and increase his income. He sells Manakish (a special folded dough just like pizza, with special traditional toppings such as thyme, cheese and meat: a traditional everyday Lebanese breakfast)
Abdullah is expanding his business, that's why he applied for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy the necessary tools for making Saj bread (Traditional Lebanese bread). This bread is highly requested these days especially with the special toppings he adds.
Abdullah hopes to increase his income and expand his working zone, which will help him to move to another area with increased number of customers.
