Jihad is a 22-year-old married Palestinian refugee, living and working in a Palestinian camp in Lebanon.

Just like almost all of the Palestinians living in Lebanon, Jihad has a limited access to several working domains and sectors. Jihad has been working in construction since four years ago. He specializes in pasting floor tiles. His uncle provided him with the necessary experience to move forward with his domain.

He used to work as a nurse, but his low income forced him to move forward towards starting his own business, which he works hard to develop and improve.

He is acquiring a Youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to buy new tools and machines necessary for developing his business. He will buy a power engine and a special tiles' cutting machine to make his work easier and faster.

Jihad hopes to keep on expanding his business more and more to provide his family with a better living.
