Summer is around the corner so Jalal thought of taking a loan from FATEN to purchase a larger variety of goods for his small store.

Jalal is a holder of a BA degree in Business Administration. Since all attempts to find a job in his field failed, he opened a small store in Birzeit University where he sells accessories, jewelery, bags and many other things shown in the picture where he stands in his shop.

Jalal's store is the only one of its kind inside the university campus, where the number of students is large enough to guarantee sustainability and a continuously increasing demand.
