Mohammad is a 20-year-old young man. He is married and lives in Jenin city located in Palestine. Mohammad has a project (business) selling perfumes. He wants to expand his project and buy more perfumes and new accessories to sell. The amount of money that Mohammad has isn't enough to pay for expanding, so he needs to take a loan of $800 from FATEN. When Mohammad gets the FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to expand his project and have more collections of perfumes and accessories to sell. This will increase his income and he will live in better conditions. Mohammad is photographed in his project of selling perfumes.
