Yaser, age 25, operates a shop where he sells electrical appliances for home use. He lives with his parents and siblings in a small, old house in the city of Deir el Balah, and he helps support the family's needs with his earnings.

Yaser opened his shop some years ago, and at present it is a very simple shop. It needs a good deal of development and support in order to bring it up to speed. He would like to add new products and expand his business. He has therefore applied for a Murabaha loan from FATEN. He will use his loan funds to buy a variety of products to offer for sale.

He will use his expected profits to improve his business, to help support his family, and eventually to prepare a home in which to live with his future wife.
