Hayel, who appears in the photo, is a Palestinian single young man. He lives with his family in a small agricultural village. He works in agriculture with the rest of his family members. Hayel wants to contribute to the purchase of seedlings and a water tank to irrigate crops. He is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to provide a share of the family's costs of purchasing the seedlings and a water tank to irrigate crops. It will allow Hayel and his family to produce a better crop and, thus, to increase their sales and to improve their income.
