Theeb is a 30-year-old man. He is married and a father to one son and one daughter. Theeb is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past seven years, Theeb has been selling perfumes to customers. His store is located in a good traffic area. He has many loyal customers and has a good reputation in the market which makes his business a profitable one and a second source of income to the family. However, at times, the business needs more support to cover the costs.

Theeb is requesting a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to cover the cost of purchasing a large collection of perfumes for resale. The new perfume collection will attract more and new customers which will increase sales and improve his income. Theeb is photographed inside his store.
