Salah is a 30-year-old young man who is a father of one son and one daughter. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. To improve his income he works during the evening as a taxi driver, taking internal and external requests.
Salah wants to own a taxi so he can work freely and increase his income. To purchase the taxi, he needs to add to the amount of money he already has by getting a loan from FATEN. When Salah gets the loan, he will be able to purchase the taxi and work extra hours to increase his income and create better living conditions for his family.
