A loan of $3,000 helped to buy a machine for making and frying falafel, a traditional dish.

Jawad's story

Jawad is a 54-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and two daughters.

For the past three years, Jawad has had a restaurant for making falafel sandwiches for customers, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the costs of work.

Jawad is requesting a $3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a machine for making and frying falafel to speed up the process of his work and provide better quality to his loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve Jawad's income.
