Mohannad is 24 years old and single. He has had a grocery store for three years. It is profitable and helps him to depend more on himself. Mohannad has moved his store to another vital area to help him increase his sales and improve his income. He wants to purchase a large collection of groceries to resell so he can compete with others well and enter the local similar field strongly. Therefore, he needs to take a loan from FATEN to pay for the groceries. When Mohannad gets the loan, he will have the power to compete with others by having a big collection of groceries to resell and increase his income to create better life conditions for himself. Mohannad is photographed in his new store.
