Nashat is 31 years old, married and lives in the city of Rafah. He has three sons, all of whom attend school. He is employed in the public sector, where he earns a very low wage which barely covers the family's needs. For the past six years, Nashat has also worked in fishing, because the income from this job supports family needs and covers part of the family's expenses. He is requesting a loan from FATEN to buy raw materials to make new nets for fishing. This will help him increase his income. We see Nashat in the photo, which was taken while he was working.
