Yaser is a 36-year-old father of three daughters and two sons. He has a grocery store in the city and also works in the sheep trade. Yaser was a construction worker but changed his job a year and a half ago as he had an accident which prevented him from working in construction. He took a loan from FATEN to increase the variety he sells in the grocery store, which will increase the number of clients and profits.
Yaser appears in the picture above in his store.
