Waseem is a 19-year-old single man from a village near Nablus, called Beddya. He lives with his parents and four brothers in a very simple house in the village. His father has a sewing workshop where he gets a low income and not enough to cover all the family needs. Waseem opened a small coffee shop where he makes fresh cocktails and sells soft drinks. It is a good business and the demand is high.

Waseem took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy a new refrigerator and make new decorations for his coffee shop. By taking this loan, Waseem will be able to improve his business and increase the sales.
