Musa, 43 years old, is married and the father of two daughters and three sons. The family lives in Tulkarem in Palestine, where his wife is a nurse in a public hospital. Musa's shoulder was hurt badly during the first Intifada and has been trying to fix it since then. Musa decided to go to Jordan to receive treatment and came to FATEN to get a loan to help him cover the expenses.
