Mahmoud is a father of one son, and he has been working in a blacksmith workshop since he finished vocational school. He saved enough money to start his own workshop four years ago. The workshop is slowly growing and developing its own clientele. Mahmoud does blacksmith work for houses such as windows and doors.
Mahmoud took a loan from FATEN to purchase a more advanced iron cutting machine which will increase the workshop's productivity. Mahmoud's son is at school.
Mahmoud was photographed in FATEN's office in Nablus.
