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.
