Iyad, who is in the picture here, is a 36-year-old man from Jericho. He is the father of two daughters and two sons. Iyad saved money when he was employed to start his own business one day. Now he has enough money and has started a butchery and grocery store.
Iyad needs a small amount of money to purchase a fridge to display meat in the butchery and he will use the rest of the money to purchase goods to sell in the grocery store.
