Raed is a 40-year-old man from Rafah city in Rafah refugee camp. Raed lives with his wife and is a NationA. Palestinian Authority employee. Raed's wife doesn't work which makes his salary the only source of income. Raed took out a loan from FATEN to purchase a new fridge to replace the old one he has in his house. The old one was a secondhand fridge which needed a lot of maintenance.
