Amer (pictured) is a 30-year-old married man from Gaza city. He lives with his wife and three kids (two sons and one daughter) in a small and simple house.

Two years ago, Amer opened a small electrical repair workshop. It has been a very good project, in large part because Amer has significant experience in this field.

Amer would like to improve his store. As a result, he is seeking a loan from FATEN. The loan proceeds would help him buy more repair parts for his workshop, which Amer believes will enable him to increase his productivity and also his income.
