Waseem lives in Gaza and has managed a grocery store since 2008. His store is well-located as it is next to a major souk (market). He is taking out a loan from Ryada to purchase a greater variety of goods for his store to resell to his customers.
Waseem is 29 years old and has a fianceé. He hopes to have a wedding and start a family soon. This loan will allow him to increase his business activity and income, which he will use towards realizing his goal.
