Osama's story

Osama, who appears in the photo, is a hardworking and ambitious young man who tries his best to provide a decent life for his family. He is 27 years old and lives with his family in Ramallah, West Bank. Osama has a small barber shop that is his only source of income.

He turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy tools and needed equipment for his work. This will improve his work and increase his income. Osama hopes the lenders will help with the funding of his loan.
