AlaaEdden is a 32-year-old, married man and a father to two sons and one daughter. He is a worker who gets a low salary which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
AlaaEdden is building a new house to improve his family's living conditions, but the house's building process and its requirements are very expensive and he needs more and more money. The amount of money AlaaEdden has is not enough to complete all the work.
He is requesting a USD 1,500 loan from Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to cover the cost of purchasing necessary construction supplies, such as cement, wood, and iron, to complete building the house. This will speed the process of completing the building of the house and will enable AlaaEdden and his family to move into their new house soon and enjoy living in it. AlaaEdden is photographed in the location of his new house.
