Hatem is 48 years old, from Nablus. He is married and has three children, who attend school.
He has worked lifting building materials in construction, using a crane and a winch, since 2009. He asked Ryada for this loan in order to buy a crane that works on diesel instead of electrical power, like the one he owns.
Through this loan, he will be able to increase his work and thus improve his income.
