Talaat is a 21-year-old young man from Hebron. Talaat studies mechanical engineering. He graduates next semester and will start working on his graduation project and final seminar. Talaat came to FATEN for a loan to pay for last semester's tuition fees as well as purchase all the items needed for his graduation project. Talaat's brother is a Palestinian National Authority employee, who will help him pay back the loan until he graduates and starts working. Talaat appears in the picture here in FATEN's office.
