Moustafa: The only breadwinner for his family, a loan of $2,000 helps buy new accessories and gifts to sell at his stall.

iCrowdNewswire - Mar 15, 2016


Moustafa is a 21-year-old single man from Rafah, Gaza Strip, which is both a city and a refugee camp. He lives with his family in a small, old house. He is the only breadwinner for his family, and they depend on him for support.

Moustafa has a store for selling accessories and gifts in the city. It is a good business and provides him with a good income, but the economic situation in the Gaza Strip is bad because of the latest conflict.

Moustafa took a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development. This loan will help him to buy new accessories and gifts to sell at his store. He hopes that this new inventory will enable him to increase his sales, increase his customers, and eventually save enough income to cover his family expenses.
