Hussein who is a 26-year-old young married man with one son, is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. He also has a stall to sell cleaning materials which is a profitable venture that helps him to improve his income and create better living conditions for his family. Hussein has a shortage of some cleaning materials and does not have enough money to purchase them, so he needs to take a loan from FATEN to purchase the cleaning materials he needs. Taking this loan will enable Hussein to have a variety of cleaning materials in his stall. His costumers will be satisfied and his sales will increase and so will his income. Hussein is photographed in the picture.
