Amer is a 29-year-old single young man from a small village near Tulkarm city. He works as an employee in a local firm where he gets a low income. This is the only source of income to the family. Amer's sister is a student in a local university where she studies IT. She would like to finish her studies and find a job in the future to improve the family living conditions. Amer took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN. This loan will help his sister to buy a new laptop for her study. By taking this loan, she will be able to do her homework and prepare her reports easily.
