Mahmoud is 30 years old and married with four children, two of whom attend the public primary school. The family live in their own house in Gaza City, a Palestinian city in the Gaza Strip. With a population of 515,556, it is the largest city in the Palestinian territories.

For 5 years, Mahmoud has worked at his cosmetics shop. He asked Ryada for this youth loan to buy display boxes and air conditioning. Mahmoud has a lot of customers who prefer to buy from him rather than any other shops in the area because he treats them nicely. He hopes that his business continues to grow so that he can increase his income and be able to give his children good living conditions and meet their needs.
