Mohammad, who is a 30-year-old young man, is married and without children yet. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary.
He is raising sheep and works in agriculture. He sells his products to help increase his income. Mohammad wants to prepare his piece of land for the winter season by cultivating with peas such as wheat peas, chick peas, etc., but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan from FATEN.
When Mohammad gets the loan, he will be able to purchase different types of peas and cultivate his piece of land to prepare well for the winter season. This will enable him to get a better crop and this will lead to an increase in his sales and his income. Mohammad is photographed in the picture.
