AbdulSalam is a Palestinian man. He is married and is the father of two sons and four daughters. AbdulSalam has been a municipal cleaner for one year. He earns a small salary, which is barely enough to cover his family's needs.
AbdulSalam is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a machine to clean public places and gardens. This will allow him to expand the scope of his work, improve his work, and increase the family's income.
