Amer is a 32-year-old man. Amer is the father of one daughter and three sons. He rented a space less than one year ago to start a grocery store where he sells all food varieties and frozen meat. The store is located next to a school and in a good location in the city. Amer hopes to be able to sell fruits and vegetables soon when the store's returns increase.
Amer came to FATEN and took out a loan to purchase a large variety of goods. The picture of Amer here was taken in the store.
