A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more stock of soft drinks to sell to the local traders.


Baha's story

Baha is a 32-year-old married man from Rafah City. He lives with his wife and four young children; three sons and one daughter. Baha works as an employee in the public sector. He gets a very low wage which is not enough to cover all of the family’s needs, So Baha decided to supplement his income by transporting soft drinks from the factory to the supermarkets and small shops in the city. It is a profitable job and it helps him with part of the family’s expenses.
Baha requested a loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy more stock of soft drinks to sell to the local traders. This will increase his income and improve the family’s living conditions.
