Omar is a 47-year-old father of three daughters and one son. His daughters are 20, 19, and 16, while his son is 21. Omar has a store in the city of Gaza in Gaza Strip, and he wants to start selling clothes, which will secure the family a good income.
Omar took out a $2,000 loan from FATEN to purchase the needed clothes and start selling them in his store. Omar's son Mahmoud will help him running the store.
