Adel is a 37-year-old man. He is married and has five sons and two daughters. He lives in Ramallah city, located in Palestine. Adel works in general trade. He buys several kinds of goods in large quantities such as clothes, electronics, shoes, etc. and distributes it among all cities in Palestine. Adel wants to invest his experience and the help of his sons in this field and start a store to sell goods at retail. This project needs to pay in cash and Adel does not have enough money available, so he is in need of a loan of $2,000 from FATEN.
When Adel takes the loan from FATEN, which is easily repaid on a monthly basis, he can start a store and fill it with goods to sell. This project will add to the family another source of income and improve their living conditions. Adel is photographed in FATEN's branch.
