Rami is a 35-year-old man. He is married and the father of two sons and three daughters. He is a worker across the border, but the salary he earns is low and not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past four years, Rami has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project, but also it needs more support to cover the costs.
Rami is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, flour, canned food and dairy products. This will increase sales and increase Rami's income, so he will offer to his family better living conditions.
