Ahmad is an 18-year-old, single young man from a village near Jenin city. He lives with his parents in a very simple house. His father is a teacher and he earns a low income which is not enough to cover all the family's needs. Ahmad works as a construction worker and he supports his family by paying part of their expenses.

Ahmad would like to improve his family's living conditions by buying all the things they need. Therefore he has taken out a USD loan from FATEN to help him to buy a solar energy system for heating water, so that he can provide hot water for his family with lower electricity costs.
