Ammar's story

Ammar is a 35-year-old refugee who lives with his family in Jericho, West Bank. He is an enthusiastic and active young man, full of hope and energy. He is a hard worker and serves his family by facing life's challenges.

In addition to his work in a hotel, Ammar recently opened a small cafe in order to enhance his family's living standards. He went to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy chairs, tables, food supplies, and tools needed for the cafe. This will improve his work and increase his income. He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
