Fayez is a conservative person who prefers not to have his photo published online, so his elder son, Ramadan, appears in his Kiva profile photo. The photo was taken in the workshop.
Fayez is a 52-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons. His wife is a UN employee who gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past year, Fayez has had a workshop for repairing electronics and reselling these electronics to customers. His elder son, Ramadan, is helping him in operating the workshop which has been a profitable business and is considered as the main source of income to the family.
Fayez is requesting a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new repair kit and improving the workshop's condition by installing new tiles. This will improve the workshop's condition and improve the quality of repairing electronics which will attract more customers and will increase sales and the family's income.
