Tayseer, whom we see in the picture above, is a 41-year-old man from Jenin. He is the father of three sons and two daughters. Tayseer and his sons work the land, growing and selling vegetables. However, this business is not providing enough income for the father to pay for the household expenses and his children's education.

Tayseer decided to start another business where one of the sons could work and help him. One of Tayseer's sons was trained to repair mobile phones, so Tayseer rented a small shop for this business. He took a loan from FATEN to purchase the tools used to repair mobile phones and the exhibition stands used to display them in the shop.
