Abdul Raheem started the career he loves at a young age. He used to provide catering services and cooking for weddings and parties in Qalqilia but a few years ago he had a leg injury which stopped him from working. Now that he has recovered, he returned to his work and bought the needed tools to resume catering.
Since Abdul Raheem had no source of income he asked for a loan from FATEN to cover the cost of equipment and to be able to expand his work and serve a larger number of potential customers. This is because he is known for his good taste and commitment to deadlines.
Abdul Raheem is a married, 37-year-old man and the father of four children.
