Yasser is a 40-year-old man. He is married and has one son and four daughters. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. He also has a business raising ornamental birds for sale.
Yasser wants to expand his business by purchasing more ornamental birds to resell and increase his income, but the amount of money he has isn't enough, so he needs to take a loan in the amount $1,000 from FATEN. When Yasser gets the loan, he will purchase more ornamental birds and have a better collection to resell and increase his income. Then he will be able to create better living conditions to his family. Yasser is photographed in the FATEN branch.
