Eyad, who appears in the picture while he is sewing clothes, is a young Palestinian man, married and a father to three sons. He is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past one year, Eyad has been sewing clothes and reselling them to customers, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the costs.
Eyad wants to expand and improve his project, so he is requesting a 1,100 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new sewing machine. This will speed the process of his work and increase sales and improve the family's income.
