Raed is a 38-year-old single man. He is employed in a local company and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover his needs. For the past two years, Raed has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project, but more financial support is needed to cover the costs.
Raed is requesting a USD 1,500 loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, sugar, and dairy products. This will increase sales and increase Raed's income.
