Mahmoud is a 23-year-old single man from Gaza. Mahmoud would now like to open his own business, so he decided to start a business of his own by opening a bookshop in which he sells stationary. He hopes that with this loan, he will be able to buy stationary for his bookshop and furniture as well. Something that will make his business special or different from others is that he is planning to open a toy section, since no other bookstore has this. He hopes that this will bring in more customers and increase his income.
