Khaled is a 63-year-old man, married and a father with five sons.
For the past 30 years, Khaled has been selling wrist watches and accessories, which has been a profitable project.
Khaled is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of making some changes and improvements to his store such as: installing new shelves and cupboards, painting, and installing lights and ceiling decoration. This will create a more modern image for the store and attract new customers, which will increase sales and improve the family's income.
