Mohammad K. is 54 years old and the father of three daughters and four sons. He owns and runs a supermarket in Ramallah as a source of living. Two of his sons who work with him at the supermarket are married and responsible for their own families.
Mohammad's wife and sons work with him to help and support the three families. Therefore, he applied for his first loan from FATEN to expand the business and buy more goods which will, he hopes, increase the families' income and improve their situation.
Mohammad and his son Tamer appear in the photo.
