Waleed's story

Waleed, who appears in the photo, is a hardworking young man who tries his utmost to provide his family with a decent life.

He is a 25-year-old refugee, living with his family in a village near Jenin, West Bank. He has a small restaurant for Pizza which is the only source of income for him.

He turned to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy machines and supplies needed for his work. This will improve his work and enhance his income. He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
