For six months now, Hussein has been opening a grocery store in addition to roasting coffee and nuts and selling them to customers, which has been a profitable project, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the costs of the store.
Hussein is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, sugar and milk. This will increase sales and increase Hussein's income.
