Muhammad's story

Muhammad is a wonderfully ambitious young man who tries his utmost to achieve his dreams and help his family to live a decent life. He is an 18-year-old refugee, living with his family in a village near Ramallah, West Bank. He is studying at a local college to become a professional chef.

He studies hard to get to graduation and hopes to find a good job in the future. His father is the sole provider for the family, but his income is barely enough to cover basic needs. Because of that, Muhammad went to Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay his education fees for college. He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
