"I am taking this loan from FATEN to purchase birds and feed which I sell at my store. I believe that this will improve my financial situation and provide enough money for me to get married," Shadi G. tells us.

Shadi is a 27-year-old single young man from Gaza City, and an employee of the government. He owns a store and is shown in the photo standing in front of his birds. The store is in an excellent location in Gaza's market which is close to the shore.

Shadi is thinking of expanding his business by selling ornamental fish in addition to birds and feeds. He believes that this would be a successful idea as it's the first of its kind in Gaza city.
