Shawqi's story

Shawqi is a 27-year-old single man from Dier Al-balah City, Gaza Strip, which is both a city and a refugee camp. He lives with his family in a small, old house.

Shawqi is working in the field of interior decoration of homes. He also has a workshop for repair of car wheels. It is a good business and provides him with a good income, but Gaza Strip is a difficult place to live due to the the Israeli economic blockade, in place since 2007.

Shawqi took a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development. This loan will help him to buy new tools for his workshop. He hopes that this new tools will enable him to increase his customers and eventually save enough income to get married.
