Iyad is a 37-year-old married man from Gaza City. He is a father with two sons and one daughter. Iyad works as an employee in a local company and he gets a low income. This income is not enough to cover the family expenses. For the past five years, Iyad has had a small store for electrical machine parts. He works there after his job. It is hard for him but this is the only way to provide his family with all they need.
Iyad took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy more products to resell and also expand his store. This will improve his business and also his income.
