Jameel is 19 years old and lives with his family in Gaza. His life conditions prevented him from completing higher education, so in 2013, he decided to work with his father selling chicken. He earns a monthly income of $519 USD. He brings the chickens from a poultry farm near his shop, but still needs a lot of improvement and changes made to his business.

Jameel has applied for this youth loan to buy a refrigerator and new chicken plucking machine, which will help him to improve his financial condition, support the needs of his family, and reinvest in his business.

His dream is to complete his education and provide the best life conditions for his family. Jameel is very grateful to everyone who helps him to achieve success in his business with this loan.
