Nael is 31 years old, from Gaza. He is a married man with a son and a daughter.
Nael has been working in the restaurants for 3 years, but lately he's opened a restaurant for himself on the 15th January, 2011. He has one employee. He makes “Shawarma food” – Shawarma is a traditional food in Palestine. Nael asked Ryada for funds to buy new tables, new food machines and to make a simple decoration to attract his customers.
His future ambitions are to be well-known and open new branches all over Palestine and hire employees, which will open new opportunities for many young people that didn’t succeed in their schools. Also, Nael hopes to improve his living conditions.
