A loan of $2,000 helped to buy a refrigerator and some goods, as well as install shelves for his start up.


Ahmad's story

Ahmad is 18 years old and from Gaza. He is working on a start up project and owns a grocery store. He asked Ryada for this start up loan in order to buy a refrigerator and some goods, as well as install shelves. He hopes that this loan will help him start his own project and increase his income. Ryada's Startup Loan is exclusively for borrowers who are beginning new enterprises, not for existing projects. To qualify, a borrower must show a clear business plan and realistic potential for success. The borrower must also invest their own money and resources into at least 50 percent of the startup enterprise. Ryada believes strongly in the potential of these borrowers and grants them a three month grace period to help them get their business off the ground.
