Yahiya is 48-years-old and a father with three sons and three daughters. He is pictured here. For the past ten years, he has operated a food stall where he sells Palestinian traditional food such as hummus, foul, and falafel. Yahiya's business has been profitable but he lacks the raw ingredients to produce his food.
Yahiya is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help cover the cost of purchasing bulk ingredients to make falafel, hummus, and foul. He will also improve the condition of his food stall. His loan will increase his sales and improve his family's income.
