Oussama

Lebanon
Ain Al Helwi, Lebanon / Fuel/Firewood

A loan of $2,500 helped to increase his business merchandise with big quantities of diesel which is highly requested during this season by the customers to warm up since they face a very cold winter season in his region.


Oussama's story

Oussama is a 26-year-old single Palestinian refugee who spent almost all of his life living and working in a Palestinian camp just like almost all of the Palestinians living in Lebanon with limited access to several living and working domains. Oussama has thirteen years of experience in his current domain, since he had to quit school and work hard to support his parents in their living. Oussama has a small fuel station inside the camp where he provides the citizens with the fuel and diesel which they request a lot during the winter season since they depend on it for getting warm.

Thus, Oussama is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva partner Al Majmou, to increase his business merchandise with big quantities of diesel which is highly requested during this season by the customers to warm up since they face a very cold winter season in his region. This will be Oussama's sixth cycle as Al Majmoua borrower. Through his previous loans, he established a car wash section which he is also working hard to develop properly. Oussama hopes to develop his station and become capable of opening another branch outside the camp which will sure increase his income and enhance his living.
