Nayef is a 23-year-old single man who has been selling fruits and vegetables since 2004. He was only 14 years old when he started working, because just like almost all of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, they had no wide choices of education or businesses in Lebanon.

Nayef dreams of expanding his work and opening a big grocery store of his own in a very good commercial location.

Nayef is taking his first step forward towards business development, through an applied for YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new additional carriage and increase his products diversity.

He hopes to open a wide wholesale fruits and vegetables market in the future.
