A loan of $1,000 helped to increase his business capital through increasing his amount of metals stock.


Youssef's story

Youssef is a 29-year-old married Palestinian refugee and the father of two children. He has been working in the metal hardware business since 10 years ago. This is his only source for living, and he has to work hard to develop it. Youssef lives in a Palestinian camp. He works in buying and selling used metals to be melted and sold as raw materials. This business is very good but needs a high amount of capital to improve and develop it; that's why he is acquiring a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua: to increase his business capital through increasing his amount of metal stock. Youssef is happy with his business level in the meantime, and he is working hard to expand it in the future, through renting or buying a wide land to spread his metals according to quality, and to keep his customers capable of seeing what they need in a better way.
