Ra’fat is 37 years old. He lives in Gaza with his wife and four children, who all attend the public primary school.

For the past four years, Ra'fat has run a food market, and this business helps the family income, especially when they are a big family and need to ensure their kid’s needs. Ra’fat sells different kinds of foodstuffs, like soft drinks, cookies and other items.

Ra'fat has asked Ryada for this loan to buy goods, a display refrigerator, and shelves.

Ra’fat is very grateful to everyone who helps him. He hopes to buy a bigger grocery store in the future.
