Mahmoud's story

Mahmoud is a 29-year-old man who lives with his family in Jericho, West Bank. He is an enthusiastic and active young man, full of hope and energy. He is a hard worker, serving his family by facing life's challenges.

He works in construction and painting; it's the only source of income for him. He went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy tools and supplies needed for his work. This will improve his work and increase his income.

He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
