Alaa' is a 29-year-old young man who is married with one son. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary in addition to his work in agriculture. Alaa' wants to increase his profit from selling olive products by purchasing more olive seedlings. However, he doesn't have the money to buy the olive seedlings, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Alaa' gets the loan, he will purchase the olive seedlings and maximize his sales of olive products to increase his income. Then he will be able to offer better living conditions to his family. Alaa' is photographed in the picture.
