Ahmad is a 21-year-old young man who lives in Bethlehem with the family. He is employed in a stable job and his brother works in a bakery but with a decent salary. Ahmad wants to marry this summer but the amount of money he has to pay for the wedding expenses isn't enough, so he needs to take a loan of $1,500 from FATEN. When Ahmad takes the FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to pay for the wedding expenses and prepare himself well for this occasion. Ahmad appears in the photograph.
