Microloans for Syrian Refugee Small Business Startups

Microloan, a refugee hairdressers in her own home funded by the Goodall Foundation through ReVI in Izmir, Turkey

Our microloan to a refugee enabled her to open a hairdressing salon in her own home

With the core support of Goodall Foundation through ReVI, we find entrepreneurs in the Syrian refugee population, and give them assistance and interest-free microloans for their small business startup needs.

Case Study 1 – we helped fund a hairdresser amongst the refugee population to fit out a room in her house as a salon. She had been donated a pair of scissors and was working to her best but, without the loan she would not have been able raise the capital to convert the room. Now she has plumbing, and the space for women to come together and build a community – and his was her dream.

Microloan bakery izmir, refugee small business loans through the Goodall Foundation and ReVI

Case Study 2 – we helped Hamid to open a bakery in Izmir, by funding the building of a special oven that bakes the Syrian flat bread. It was mobile and weighed 200 kilos. He was forced to move four times and finally end up near the clouds above Izmir city. Regrettably, he was shut down by local competition, however, he was able to employ two people at the time, and saved enough money to buy a parcel of land to farm. Something he did in Syria, and that his family lives from now.
