Ahmad, age 30, earns a low wage as a worker. This is the only source of income for his family. He lives in a small house with his wife and their child in the city of Rafah.
Because the water in Rafah is not very pure, Ahmad would like to buy a water purification filter. This will provide safer, cleaner water for the family to use for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. For this purpose, Ahmad has requested a loan from FATEN.
This investment will offer the family better living conditions.
