Jalal is a Palestinian man who is married with three children. He operates a clothing shop and an olive-wood workshop where his wife helps him. He has had the clothing shop for one-and-a-half years and it works very well.
Jalal has requested 2,000 USD from FATEN to buy new goods for his shop, since Eid al Adha (a Muslim feast) is next week and also Christmas and New Year are next month.
Jalal appears in the photo at his store.
