Amer approached MFW to obtain the financing that helped him expand his existing project (Falafel Restaurant). The funding enabled him to purchase a plate station to fry falafel in front of the restaurant to create space inside the restaurant.
Despite the challenges that Amer faced in the beginning, including the weak financial capacity to finance the project and the lack of people’s knowledge about his restaurant in the beginning, he was able in a short time to attract many customers, and he aspires to have a vegetables and fruits shop in the near future.
Describing his experience with MFW, Amer said, “It is a wonderful and supportive institution for men and women alike.”
