Ali, age 22 and unmarried, is a farmer. His family members are also farmers and are dependent on the income they generate from agriculture. He lives with his family in a small village called Kofradan near Jenin. Kofradan is famous for being a strong agricultural village in Palestine. The people there cultivate a variety of types of vegetables on their farmland.

Ali is known for his strong personality and adaptability. For the past three years, Ali has been working in an Internet cafe in the village. He purchases Internet accounts from Palestinian Telecommunications and sells these to his clients in Kofradan. This has been a profitable project and provides him with a second source of income.

Ali is requesting a youth loan from FATEN, which he will use to cover the cost of purchasing additional Internet accounts. This will meet the growing customer demand for Internet accounts, and the investment will increase his sales and improve his income.
