Nadeem is a 22-year-old young man who has a fruit and vegetable store that is his only source of income. Nadeem wants to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables in bulk so that he has a better collection to sell. The amount of money he has isn't enough, so he needs a loan of $3,000 from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). When Nadeem gets this loan he will purchase fruits and vegetables, which will provide him with a better and fresher collection to resell and increase his income so that he may live in better conditions.
