Khaled is 34 years old and the father of two daughters and three sons. Khaled was working in a coffee and nuts roasting house. Khaled wanted to start his own business as he has the experience and has saved enough money to rent a place, prepare it to launch the roasting house and start distributing to shops in the city.

Khaled took out a $3,000 loan from FATEN to purchase nuts and coffee grains needed to launch the business that he has been working on for the last 13 months. Khaled, who appears in the picture here, will be able to have a better income after starting his own business.
