Archived: Palestine – Fouad: A loan of $2,500 helps Fouad buy a sewing machine and start a new business.

iCrowdNewswire - May 26, 2016


Nablus, Palestine Services | Sewing
Fouad is a youth pioneer man. He is 25 years old and lives with his wife and a little son in Nablus city. He was working in the construction sector where he earned little and had unstable income. Because of that, Fouad decided to open his own business. His business idea is to buy a sewing machine to sew and repair clothes because there is no sewing (services) in his area. Fouad requested a start up loan from FATEN to start his own business and buy the first sewing machine to start a new beginning.
