Ramadan is a 41-year-old man. He is a father, with two sons and one daughter.
For the past eight years, Ramadan has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable business and the only source of income to the family.
Ramadan is requesting a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and will enable Ramadan to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income.
