A loan of $1,000 helped to perform necessary maintenance on his house.

Jihad's story

Jihad is a 27-year-old, married man, and the father of one child. In addition to supporting his wife and child, Jihad had to take full responsibility for supporting his mother, and start working since his father left Lebanon. He is the whole family's sole breadwinner.

He has been working in a construction business since seven years ago. He is specialized in painting houses and is an expert in his domain. Jihad is a hard worker, who puts much effort into developing his business, to provide his family a better living. Like almost all Palestinian refugees, he doesn't have a wide variety of business opportunities to seize -- that's why he has to develop what's available and improve it to be the best.

Jihad is requesting a Youth Loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to perform necessary maintenance on his house. He needs to keep it a healthy living place for his beloved family. This is his second cycle as Al Majmoua borrower, and he has a good standing repayment history. His previous loan helped him a lot in his business, by enabling him to renew his working tools. He hopes to stay capable of replying to his big family's needs, as much as he can.
