Jumaa is a 41-year-old Palestinian man. He is married and father to two sons.
For the past several years, Jumaa has had a butcher shop. It has been profitable and the only source of income to the family, but also it needs more support to cover the costs. Jumaa wants to pay the cost of purchasing a new machine to clean chickens. Jumaa is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from Faten for this purpose.
What distinguishes this project is that it is the only one in the area where he lives. Taking this loan will increase sales and improve the family's income, which will enable them to live in better conditions.
