Mohammad is a 21-year-old single man from Gaza city. Mohammad has a grocery store, selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover the costs.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,500 USD 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 milk, and to make improvements in the store's condition such as installing additional shelves and painting. This will increase sales and increase Mohammad's income.
