Ahmad is a 27-year-old man from Gaza Strip. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee. As his salary is not that large, he opened a small cosmetics store with the help of his brother. The store has all the necessary cosmetics and make-up products, which are widely used as in every other place.

Ahmad wants to re-decorate his store. He needed a $1,500 loan, which he took from FATEN for this purpose. Ahmad is saving money in order to get married soon and his work and store are helping him save.

Ahmad stands in his store in the picture.
