Mahmoud's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy livestock to raise.

Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is a 26-year-old single man from Khanyounis. He is a hardworking young man and likes to be independent. Mahmoud owns a small business raising livestock. It has been only one year since he started his business and he says, “so far so good.” He sells the animals themselves or their meat to restaurants. Mahmoud took a loan from FATEN to buy more livestock to raise. Acquiring this loan will help him increase his sales and productivity, as well as the quality of his meat. Most importantly, his business will grow and expand and Mahmoud will make a name for himself in the market. He wishes to hire more people and he works very hard. Mahmoud would like to settle down, get married, and raise a family in stable financial conditions. He is very grateful for your help and appears in the photo.
