Mahmoud is a taxi driver. He is married and has one son. Mahmoud took out a $1,500 loan to cover the insurance and licensing fees for the taxi he drives in the city of Gaza. Mahmoud (who is photographed next to his taxi) took out the loan from FATEN as he couldn't cover the expenses from his income. He can't drive without insurance and licensing, which would cut off the only source of income for his family.
