Nidal is a 28-year-old, married man from Rafah city. He lives with his wife in a small, simple house. Nidal works as an employee in the public sector, with a low income. This income is barely enough to cover all the family's needs. Nidal tries to find another source of income to improve the family's living conditions.

Nidal took a USD Murabaha loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help him to buy a new rickshaw for work purposes. By taking this loan, Nidal will be able to transfer goods to the local traders. This will increase the family's income and improve their living conditions.
