Johny lives in Bethlehem and owns a barber shop in the old city of Bethlehem. Johny has been working as barber for the last 27 years. Johny's shop needs a new front door and some improvements. He also wants to purchase new tools to keep up with modern trends in his profession.
Bethlehem city suffers from sudden curfews and hard conditions due to the occupation of Palestine, so Johny came to FATEN to take a $3,000 loan; money that he couldn't save because of the current situation.
