Taleb is 49 years old and is from Jenin. He is married and has three children, one of whom attends primary school. Taleb has owned a grocery store since 2008 and has one employee who helps him.
Taleb asked Ryada for this loan in order to buy goods and drinks for his grocery store. He hopes that this loan will help him increase the goods displayed and thus improve his sales and income, which will help him provide his children with the best education.
