Mohammad is a 28-year-old young man. He is married and a father to one son. He lives a simple life with his family in Tulkarem refugee camp.

Mohammad has a fishery, which is the only one of its type in the market. His store is located where there is good customer movement. This makes his project a profitable one and the only source of income to the family, but his business needs more support to cover the costs.

Mohammad is requesting a 3,000 USD Youth Loan from FATEN to cover the costs of purchasing more fish. This will offer to Mohammad a better collection of fish, so his customers will have the ability to choose and buy. It will increase sales and so improve Mohammad's income positively.
