Hazem is a 28-year-old married man. He lives with his wife in a small village near Tulkarem city. For the past 5 years, Hazem has had a supermarket selling different types of food and consumer goods. It has been a profitable project, but needs some improvements.
Hazem is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock that customers often request and to make improvements in the supermarket's condition such as installing additional shelves and painting. This will increase sales and increase Hazem's income.
