Hamza (who appears in the picture) has a tailoring workshop. It is a small one that meets the demands of the village where he lives. Hamza hired a new employee as the demand is increasing, and he needs to purchase a sewing machine. Hamza took out a loan from FATEN to purchase the sewing machine and meet the demand. He makes children's clothes and distributes to stores of the village. He hopes to start working with the stores of the city of Jenin.
