Talal is a school teacher from Qalqilia. One of his sons works as a tailor while the other three sons and a daughter are still college students. Talal used the first loan he took from FATEN to pay his sons' and daughter's college tuition fees and he is now taking the second one for the same purpose.

Talal hopes that he will be able to help his sons and daughter receive their degrees and find good jobs since they are brilliant students and deserve a good chance. He is hoping that they will help him bear life's expenses soon.

The picture above of Talal was taken at FATEN's office.
