Mohammad is the father of a nine-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.
Mohamamd is an employee of the Palestinian National Authority but his salary barely covers basic family needs. Therefore he is thinking of a job which he can do after work hours that will help him afford living expenses, especially that his daughter is having health problems which requires regular hospital visits.
Mohammad came to FATEN to take a loan in order to purchase a three-wheeled carriage to sell candies, beverages, sweets and snacks. He will start selling these items in Ramallah bus station which usually has a huge number of potential customers.
Mohammad hopes with this income to improve his family’s living conditions and be able to provide his daughter with the proper treatment she needs.
