Rasheed is a 25-year-old young man. Rasheed lives with his parents and cares for them. Rasheed's father owns a small piece of land and he helps Rasheed grow vegetables and fruits to sell. One year ago, Rasheed opened a small internet cafe to help his parents and save money to get married. Rasheed is also a college student, so his income is divided between helping his family, and paying for school and marriage expenses.

Rasheed needed a $1500 loan to cover the rest of the wedding expenses, so he came to FATEN office in Nablus, where he stands in the picture, to take a loan.
