Bassam's story

Bassam is a 29-year-old single Palestinian refugee, living and working in a Palestinian camp since he was born. In 2009, he opened his own convenience store to improve his living. His business is going just fine, but he needs external financial support to make sure that he can reply to his increasing customer needs and requests. Bassam is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase his business merchandise through special offers at good prices. He will also use part of the loan to buy furniture for his house. He hopes that in the future he will be able to open a larger shop.
