Hamad is a 43 year old married man with six sons and one daughter. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Hamad wants to purchase some necessary home appliances such as a stove and refrigerator, but the amount of money he has isn't enough so he needs to take a loan amount of $1,500 from FATEN. When Hamad gets the loan, he will be able to purchase the appliances the family needs. This will change his family's life positively and provide them with better and easier living conditions. Hamad is photographed in the picture.
