Ahmad is a 23-year-old single young man. He lives in Rafah city in Gaza Strip located in Palestine. Ahmad has a photography studio and he wants to make some decorations and internal repairs in addition to purchasing new photography equipment such as cameras, picture developing machine, etc. However, Ahmad doesn't have enough money to pay, so he is in need of a loan from FATEN for $1,000.
When Ahmad takes the FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to pay for making decorations to the studio and have new photography equipment. Ahmad will work hard to generate more money, especially because he owns the only photography studio in the area where he lives. Ahmad's ambition is to become known and expand his work. Ahmad is photographed in his photography studio.
