Salman is a 26-year-old married man. He and his wife have two sons, and he lives with his family in Gaza.

For the past two years, Salman has been running a grocery store, which has been a profitable project. His dream is to expand his store and to become the main supermarket in his town.

Salman asked Ryada for this youth loan to help him cover the cost of purchasing a variety of products and groceries for re-sale purposes, including: rice, milk, sugar, and cooking oil. He would also use the loan proceeds to buy a refrigerator. This loan would enable Salman to provide customers with all of the types of groceries they often request, which will increase his sales and improve his family's income.
