Hamzeh is a 33-year-old married man and a father to four sons and four daughters. He is employed and also works with his family to plant vegetables that they sell. These two sources of income are barely enough to cover all of the family's increasing needs.
Hamzeh has been thinking of a way to increase his family's income. He has decided to become a taxi driver. Hamzeh is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him purchase his own taxi. This will enable Hamzeh to own the taxi and work extra hours, which will increase his income and improve the family's living conditions. Hamzeh is photographed next to his taxi.
