Ibrahim is a 22-year-old single man from a small village near Tulkarem city.

He is a hard worker, but his income is low because his ability to go to work every day is inhibited by the checkpoint between his city and where he works. His income is unstable and he often faces daily challenges in his effort to make a living.

Ibrahim would like to improve his living conditions and complete building his new home so he took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ibrahim to pay the costs of buying construction materials like cement and iron.
