Sameeh is a young man from Ramallah city. He wasn't fortunate enough to continue his education, so Sameeh's parents helped him start making a living and taking responsibility by renting a grocery store. The store is becoming well known in the neighborhood and is attracting a lot of customers.

Sameeh took a $3,000 loan from FATEN in response to an increase in the number of customers. He needs to purchase a larger amount of goods to answer the demand. Sameeh is very happy that now he is able to take care of his own expenses and that he has his own business.

Sameeh appears in his store in the picture above.
