Wael is a 44-year-old married man from the city of Jabalia. He lives with his wife and two kids, a son and a daughter, in a very small, simple house. He owns a stall in the local market where he sells pastry and candy products, from which he gets a low income. This income is barely enough to cover all of the family's needs. Wael would like to improve his business.
Wael took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy more products for his store to resell. By taking this loan, Wael will be able to increase his sales and also his income.
