Sael is a 32 year-old young man. He is married and has three sons and two daughters. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary and he also works in agriculture to improve his income. Sael wants to prepare the green houses well for the coming winter's agricultural season by purchasing seedlings, fertilizers, etc,, but he hasn't enough money to pay for them.
He needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Sael gets the loan, he will purchase what he needs to have better crops. Then he will compete with others and increase his sales in agriculture. That will increase his income and offer his family better living conditions. Sael is photographed in his green house.
