Izzat is a 36-year-old married man and a father to five sons and four daughters. He lives with his family in Rafah in an area where hired water sales can't reach his house. He is a worker who gets a small salary which is barely enough to cover the family's needs, but at the same time he is trying to offer better living conditions to his family.
Izzat is requesting a 1,050 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a water purification filter for his house. This will bring clean and healthy water for different uses to Izzat and his family. He is photographed in front of the water purification filter he has in his house.
