Salaheddin is a 24-year-old young man. He is married and lives in Ramallah city located in Palestine. Salaheddin has an internet cafe and he wants to increase the number of computers because of the increasing numbers of visitors using the current computers. Salaheddin has an amount of money that isn't enough to pay for the computers, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Salaheddin takes the FATEN loan that is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to increase the number of computers and more customers will visit the internet cafe to enjoy the service. In this way, Salaheddin will improve his income and have better work and life conditions. Salaheddin is photographed in his internet cafe.
