For the past five years, Samaher has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income for her, but it is not enough to cover her costs.
Samaher is requesting a USD 1,000 youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request, such as rice, sugar and dairy products. This will offer to Samaher a variety collection of groceries to resell, which will increase sales and increase her income.
