Ramadan is a 26-year-old young man who lives in Qadoura refugee camp in Ramallah district. He had to start working repairing vehicles when he was 19 years old. Starting at a young age gave him excellent experience as a car electrician, enabling him to start his own workshop which has a very good number of clients by this time.
Ramadan came to FATEN to take a loan which will enable him to purchase needed equipment. He is also thinking of expanding his workshop by using the space next to it to be able to serve an increased number of clients.
Ramadan's workshop is located at the entrance to the refugee camp which is a good location to serve both the refugee camp and some Ramallah city clients.
Ramadan looks forward to building his career and starting his family using the project's returns.
