Khalid was working as a farmer, but now he is an employee at a local school in the village.

Khalid is asking Ryada for this loan to bleach and paint his house. This will help him take a step forward, because he is short on money to buy the materials he needs. He is very grateful to everyone who helps him.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Ryada’s efforts to reach areas of the West Bank which are underserved due to the political situation. Funds will be used to finance housing improvements in refugee camps and Areas B and C of the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority currently has limited to no authority in these areas, making it very difficult for individuals to acquire official construction and building permits. Without the necessary documentation, banks are unlikely to lend to these individuals. By supporting this loan, you are helping individuals overcome this challenge so that they can improve their living conditions.
