Mohammed, 46, is married and has six children. He lives in the Biet Lahia area of the Gaza Strip.
Mohammed took out a $3,000 loan in order to buy new home furniture. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee who receives a decent salary, but it isn't enough to allow him to buy furniture with cash. FATEN's loan, which is repaid on monthly basis, will allow him to purchase new home furniture to live in better conditions, as what he has is 30 years old.
