Mahmoud is a 29-year-old married man from Khanyounis in Gaza. He is a father to three children; one son and two daughters. For the past three years, Mahmoud has been selling fruits and vegetables to customers. His project is located in a very good place in the city, is considered as a profitable one and the only source of income the family have.

Mahmoud would like to develop his business by purchasing a new collection of seasonal fruit and vegetables that customers request and buy, so he is requesting a 1,200 USD Youth loan from FATEN for this purpose. This will increase sales and raise his income and maybe in the future Mahmoud could open a store.

Mahmoud appears in the picture.
