Wa'el is 37 years old and lives in Gaza with his wife, three sons and one daughter. He sells various kinds of foodstuffs such as cookies, candies, soft drinks, juices, macaroni, and many other items in his grocery store. He opened it 2 years ago.

He is requesting this loan to purchase a refrigerator and shelves. This will allow him to be able to increase his stock. He is ready to work even harder, to make sacrifices and push every once in a while to achieve his goal and become a successful entrepreneur. His dream is to expand his business, and he wants to use part of the profits on his children’s future education. Wa'el is very grateful to everyone who helps him to achieve success in his business with this loan.
