Nizar is a 34-year-old married man from Jabalia city. He lives in a quiet neighborhood with his wife and two young kids, a boy and a girl. Nizar works as an employee in the public sector and earns a low income, which is barely enough to cover the family’s needs. He also works as a chef in an Eastern-dining restaurant. It is a very profitable job which is now increasing due to wedding parties in the summer.

Nizar took a USD loan from FATEN. He would like to develop his business by buying cooking tools such as large pots and an oven. This will help him to increase his working capacity and also to increase his income. Nizar appears in the photo while he was cooking for a wedding party.
