Ali is a 39-year-old married man from a small village near Gaza city. He lives in a small house with his wife and four children: two sons and two daughters. All of them are under 18. He is a worker in the public sector and he gets a low income. So Ali also works as a taxi driver after his job. This gives him enough income and helps him to cover the necessary needs for the family.

Ali would like to change the car's engine because the old one causes a lot of pollution and needs more oil to work compared to the new ones.

Ali took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ali to buy a new engine for his car. This will increase the taxi capacity and also decrease the pollution and the use of oil, which will be a good thing for nature.
