A loan of $2,000 helped to increase his business merchandise with a newly released summer collection, especially before the celebrations of the holy month of Ramadan.


Maarouf's story

Maarouf is a 27-year-old single Palestinian refugee who was born and raised in a refugees camp, like most of the Palestinians living in Lebanon. Maarouf quit school during the intermediate stages to start working as house painter to support his family in their living. Six years ago, Maarouf discovered that the camp he is living in needs a special teenagers and men clothes selling shop. Thus, for this reason he established his current shop, and is developing in a well managed way as an additional income business that goes parallel with his painting profession. Maarouf is acquiring a youth loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua. This loan will enable him to increase his business merchandise with a newly released summer collection, especially before the celebrations occurring during the holy month of Ramadan. He hopes to expand his business widely and respond to most of his customers needs.
