Nihad is a young Palestinian man. He is married and has two daughters. He is employed in the private sector but he earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past two years, Nihad has owned a photography studio. He takes photos of customers and sells cameras, photo frames and albums. This has been a profitable second source of income for the family.
Nihad is requesting a loan from Faten to help him cover the costs of purchasing the necessary equipment, including cameras, photo frames and albums.
Taking this loan will increase Nihad's sales and improve his income. This will enable him to provide better living conditions for his family.
