A seed takes root in Iraq

The RealRVA Lending Team gave a  loan last week.  This loan was made on behalf of some clients who just bought a home with me as their Buyer’s Agent a few weeks ago.  The husband likes riding motorcycles, so I thought Wahhab would be the perfect match.

Wahhab Razzak Jabbar

Wahhab Razzak Jabbar, Iraq (Kiva.org)

Wahhab is from Iraq. He is 27 years old, single, and lives with seven family members.
He opened a shop for selling and repairing motorcycles in 2007. He has good experience and a good reputation and he is well known in his area.

He was requesting a $2400 loan to pay the annual rent for his shop. He is aiming to gain more profits so he can improve his family’s quality of life.

RealRVA and 75 other lenders pooled together our money to give Wahhab the $2400 loan he needed.
