Ali is a 23-year-old man from Tulkarem. Ali started his project two years ago. He owns a piece of land where he started growing strawberries. He could afford to buy only one green house to start his project, so Ali came to FATEN and took a $3000 loan in order to purchase another green house and expand the space planted.
Ali also installs air conditioning networks for buildings but would like to have strawberries as his only source of income as its returns cover all his expenses and secure better living conditions throughout the year.
Ali appears in the picture here on his land.
