Nabeel is the father of two sons and one daughter. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary; in addition, he works as a taxi driver in order to improve his income. Nabeel wants to make necessary repairs to his taxi such as: painting, changing tires and doors, etc., but since his decent salary is not enough to pay for his life expenses and his family's needs, he needs to take out a loan from FATEN of $1,000.
Getting this loan will enable Nabeel to pay for making the necessary repairs to his taxi. This will increase the taxi's efficiency and allow Nabeel to work extra hours and increase his income to provide better living conditions for his family. Nabeel is photographed next to his taxi.
