Khader is a Palestinian man. He is married and has eight sons and two daughters. He has got a license for distributing gas canisters in a vehicle he owns, and he wants to purchase more gas canisters to distribute, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay for them, so he needs to take out a loan in the amount of $3,000 from FATEN.
When Khader takes the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will have more gas canisters to distribute and that will improve his income positively and he can provide his family with better living conditions. Khader is photographed next to the gas canister distribution vehicle.
