Omri and his wife are suffering from a water leak in their house, which has increased in the winter season. Omri wants to fix this matter, so he is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN. He will use the loan to purchase the necessary materials and hire workers to fix the part of the roof that is causing the water leak. This will create for Omri and his wife suitable home conditions and enable them to enjoy living in their house. Omri is photographed inside his house.
