Adel is a Palestinian man living in Bethlehem. He is married with three young daughters. Adel is a sports teacher in a private school in Bethlehem and his wife works in a private school.
Adel estabilished his shop three years ago to have a better income for the family. At his shop he sells all sporting clothes: tracksuits, pants, shorts, tennis shoes, walking shoes and balls. He opens his shop after finishing his work at the school as the area where he opens his shop gets busy in the afternoons. He also opens it all day long on the weekends.
Adel requested 1,500 USD to buy new products for his shop. He appears in the photo at his shop.
