Jihas is a 62-year-old married man from Gaza. He has owned a grocery store since 2008 in which he sells different kinds of food, home appliances, drinks, and candies; this helps him make ends meet for him and his wife.
He asked Ryada for this loan in order to buy a refrigerator and develop the space of the grocery store. He hopes that this loan will help him increase the sales and improve his income.
