Jamal is a Palestinian married man who is a father to three sons and two daughters, all of whom are school students. Jamal is a worker who gets a low income that is barely enough to cover the family's needs and the education costs.
Jamal wants to complete building his house, so he is requesting a 2,500 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing bricks (cement blocks). Taking this loan will allow Jamal to complete building his house, which will offer the family suitable home conditions so they can enjoy living in their house.
