Hamzeh is a 38-year-old married man and a father of four daughters. He lives with his family in a small village. For three years he has owned a small grocery store, which has been profitable and the only source of income for his family. It is the only grocery store where he lives, and it has many loyal customers. Despite this, the store needs support from time to time to cover its costs.

Hamzeh is requesting a loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing groceries that customers often request such as rice, sugar, dairy products and canned food. This will increase sales and increase Hamzeh's income, so he will be able to create better living conditions for his family.
