Adel, who lives in Bethlehem, is the father of three daughters. Adel is a physical education teacher, but he has always wanted to have a sportswear store. He saved for a year and a half to fulfill his dream.
Adel's first loan from FATEN helped him to open his own business. Now that the store is prospering and has a good number of clients even outside of the busy summer season, Adel has come to FATEN for a second loan to purchase summer goods.
Adel has been a committed borrower because the store is providing a good income, which has helped him pay for his daughters' school fees.
Adel and one of his daughters appear in the picture above.
