Fadi is a 28-year-old married man from Gaza. He is a father with two daughters. For the past four years, Fadi works in a grocery store that he owns. This project is somehow profitable, but not enough. Fadi took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to develop his grocery store by purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, sugar and milk. This will increase sales and increase Fadi's income. Fadi appears in the photo while he was working in his store.
