Fawaz is a 39-year-old married man from Jenin city. He is a father for four children, two sons, and two daughters. All of his children are under 18 years old. Fawaz's family works in agriculture, planting legumes in season, which makes for an unstable income. Fawaz also works as a contractor in Jenin city and the villages around it. It is a hard job but it gives Fawaz a good income.
Fawaz would like to buy a new barrow to transfer the construction materials, especially wood and cement, to the site where he works. This will make his job easier, especially in the hot summer. For this reason he took a USD loan from FATEN. Fawaz appears in the photo while he was working in the site.
