Yasien is a Palestinian man; he is a 22-year-old single man. For the past year, Yasien has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project and a second source of income to the family, but also it needs more support to cover the costs.

Yasien is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help cover the costs of purchasing the needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request and buy such as rice, sugar, canned food and milk. This will increase sales and increase the family's income. Yasien is looking in the future to expand his project to improve his income.
