Jalal's story

Jalal is a 47-year-old married father of five children who has been working as a car mechanic for sixteen years. He is a Palestinian Refugee, living and working in a Palestinian refugee camp with limited access to several working sectors.

Jalal is acquiring his thirteenth loan cycle from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy some necessary things he needs to develop his business, since he provides car mechanic services. He also sells used spare parts for cars, which is an additional income business helpful to support his family's income and cover their needs. Jalal hopes to expand his business in the future so that he can cover his family's needs since four of his children are enrolled in a public school.
