Khaled's story

Khaled is a 34-year-old married father of three children. He is a Palestinian refugee, who has been working in the vehicle repair business since 22 years ago. He was only 12 years old when he started working, just like most of the Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon, who start working early in order to support their families. In 2003, he established his own business to improve his living.

Khaled specializes in painting cars and in bodywork. He is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy an air compressor, a paint gun and a sanding machine. Through this loan, he will be capable of developing his business and increasing his income.

He hopes to expand his workplace so as to accept more work.
