A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a cotton candy machine to expand his business.


Khalil's story

Khalil is a 46-year-old married man and father of five children. Three years ago he started selling traditional Lebanese kaak (a special baked dough filled with cheese and thyme); he has a small carriage where he sells his products on the street's sidewalk to make his living and provides his family with their necessary needs. Khalil is a hard worker and he is planning to expand his business through buying a cotton candy machine with a requested loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua. Khalil is a Syrian citizen, but he is living and working in a Palestinian Camp in Lebanon. He is working hard to expand his business outside the camp soon.
