A loan of $2,500 helps to buy construction tools and supplies to sell for his new business.


Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is a 22-year-old refugee who lives with his family in a village near Ramallah, West Bank. He is an enthusiastic and active young man who is full of hope and energy. Mahmoud is a hard worker and serves his family by facing life’s challenges. He wants to open his own business of selling construction supplies.

For this reason, Mahmoud turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy construction tools and supplies to sell for his new business. This will improve his work and increase his income. Mahmoud hopes the lenders will help by funding his loan.
