Amer is a 35-year-old man. He is married and has four sons and four daughters. He lives in Ya'bad village near Jenin city in Palestine. Amer is a Palestinian National Authority employee who gets a decent salary. Amer and his wife work in the project they have, which is farming in greenhouses, but this project is suffering from the lack of supplies that are necessary. Amer wants to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN, because the decent salary he gets isn't enough to pay in cash.
When Amer gets FATEN's loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will purchase all necessary supplies and use them to improve his project and increase the productivity of his greenhouse agriculture. Amer is photographed inside the greenhouse.
