Nahed is a conservative person who prefers not to have his photo published online, so his son appears in his Kiva profile photo.

Nahed is a 43-year-old married man and a father of two daughters and two sons. For the past four years, Nahed has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project because it is located in a good area in the market and has many loyal customers, but also from time to time it needs more support to cover the costs.

Nahed is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new refrigerator, which he will use for preserving food at his store, and also to pay for installing additional shelves. This will allow him to expand the scope of his work, improve his business, and increase the family's income.
