Raed is a 39-year-old married man from Deir el Balah city. He lives with his wife and four kids: three sons and one daughter, all of whom are school students. Raed works in his own store where he sells coal. This store has been open for the past three years. He buys it from local factories and resells it in the city.
Raed took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy more coal for his store to resell. By taking this loan, Raed will be able to improve his business and meet the high demand for coal in winter.
