Mahmoud is a 21-year-old married young man. He lives with his wife in a modest living condition in Jabalia.
For the past two years, Mahmoud has been selling cleaning materials to customers; he has a good demand from customers because he sells at reasonable prices, which makes his project a profitable one. It is the only source of income for him, and he also needs more support to cover some necessary costs.
Mahmoud is requesting a 1,200 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing more cleaning materials to sell. This will increase sales and improve Mahmoud's income. Mahmoud is photographed in his store.
