Nimer, 37, is married and the father to three sons and one daughter. For the past two-and-a-half years, he has operated a motorcycle repair shop (he is pictured here in his workshop).

Nimer has the ideal experience for this work, and his workshop is the only one of its type in the area where he lives. His workshop has been a profitable project, and the only source of income to the family, but it also needs support to cover costs.

Nimer is requesting a Murabaha loan (see explanation below) from Palestine for Credit and Development to help cover the costs of purchasing a new motorcycle repair kit. This investment will improve Nimer's quality of work and increase demand from his customers to repair their motorcycles. It will also increase Nimer’s income and provide better living conditions for him and to his family.
