A loan of $2,000 helped to buy scrap to trade and sell.

Rami's story

Rami is a 30-year-old married father of two. He is a Palestinian refugee who has lived and worked in a Palestinian camp since he was born.

Just like almost all of the Palestinians who live in Lebanon, he has limited access to several working sectors. That's why at the beginning of his working career he used to work in furniture painting and making. However, four years ago, he turned to trading scrap, which he says provides his beloved family with a better income and standard of living.

Since Rami is the family's sole earner, he is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy scrap to trade and sell.

Rami is working hard to continue building his family's house completely, and he might invest part of the loan for this purpose.
