Muhammad is a young man from Hebron. He inherited a small piece of land from his father and he started farming it to make a living. He plants seasonal vegetables and raises birds to sell. He also buys old furniture, fixes it, paints it and resells it.
Muhammad came to FATEN and took out a loan to purchase fertilizers and farming tools to replace the old ones he uses now. This loan will help him increase his returns and the number of customers.
Muhammad appears in the picture here in FATEN's office.
