Atallah is a 52-year-old man. He is married and a father with three sons and four daughters; one of his sons is working with him in the restaurant.
For the past 8 years, Atallah has been running this food restaurant, which is well known among customers and located in the middle of the refugee camp where he lives. This is the only source of income to the family and a profitable project to Atallah and his family.
Atallah is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing the necessary food supplies he needs to make basic meals such as meat, vegetables, and bread and also to improve the restaurant's condition such as purchasing additional chairs and tables and painting. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
