Husam is a 29 years old, married and lives in Khan Younis city. He has two sons and two daughters, all of whom are under ten years old. He works as an employee but earns a low income that barely covers all of his family's needs. Husam decided to take on an additional job to improve his family's living conditions and six years ago opened a small store where he sells used furniture. He is requesting a loan in U.S. dollars from FATEN to buy more used furniture to resell. By taking out this loan, he will be able to increase his sales and also his family's income.
