A loan of $2,500 helped to buy a forklift truck necessary for his business.

Toufic's story

Toufic is a 41-year-old married man and the father of three children.

He is a Palestinian refugee living in Lebanon and working as a blacksmith since 13 years ago. Toufic works hard to develop his business; that's why he is applying for his fourth loan cycle from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a forklift truck that will make his work easier in moving iron pillars from one place to another.

Toufic has a good standing and repayment history. His previous loans helped him a lot in developing his business and improving his family's living conditions.

He hopes to expand his business and be capable of working outside the Palestinian camp he is living in.
