Tamer, age 25, earns a small income as an employee in the public sector. This is the only source of income for his family. He and his wife have a young daughter and live in the city of Rafah.
Tamer has requested a loan from FATEN because he would like to buy a new laptop computer. This investment will allow him to read articles and news items so that he can stay educated in current developments. He will also use the laptop to communicate with his friends and family.
Tamer would like eventually to open his own business project in the future by taking out another loan from FATEN.
