Adham is a 25-year-old, single young man. He lives with his family in a small village near Tulkarem. His father is a broker, and the low income he earns isn't enough to cover all the family's needs.

For the past three years, Adham has been operating a cafe, which is located next to a local hospital. He serves customers with sandwiches and hot drinks, such as tea and coffee. Adham's cafe has a lot of customers and is the only one of its type near the hospital. This makes his project a profitable one. It is the only source of income to him, but it needs more support to cover some costs in order to grow.

Adham is looking to expand his cafe to meet the increasing customers' demand. He is requesting a 1,100 USD Youth Loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing additional tables and chairs, and also to purchase more coffee and tea. This will improve Adham's cafe and increase his income positively.
