Bilal is a 27-year-old married man. He is the father for one son and one daughter. Bilal is living in a humble house with his family in Hebron. Bilal is working as painter in Dora. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him. He earns a very small salary which is not enough to cover the needed expenses; he also needs more support to cover the costs.

Bilal wants to purchase more equipment to improve his work and make it more profitable; this will increase the family’s source of income. Bilal is requesting a $2,000 USD loan from FATEN to purchase the needed equipment. Bilal is photographed in the picture.
