Zakarya is a 30-year-old man. He is married and the father of two sons and two daughters. He lives with his family in a small modest house in Jabalia refugee camp. For the past two years, Zakarya has been selling clothes to customers. He has a good reputation among his many loyal customers. This project, considered a profitable one, is the only source of income for Zakarya and his family. The business needs more support to cover some costs.
Zakarya is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of bringing in a new collection of clothes to sell. Taking this loan will permit him to offer his customers a wide variety of clothing to choose from and buy, which will increase sales and improve Zakarya's income.
