IzzEddeen is a 51-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and three daughters. His elder son is a carpenter and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover his needs.
For more than ten years, IzzEddeen has been making craft items from olive wood and selling to customers and visitors who come for tourism to the Holy Land.
IzzEddeen is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new carving kit to provide better quality to his customers. This will increase sales and improve IzzEddeen's income.
