Firas, who appears in the photo, is a hardworking young man who tries his utmost to make his family a decent life. He is a 28-year-old, living with his family in a village near Ramallah, West Bank. He works in a butcher shop where it is the only source of income for the family. He wants to enhance his family's living standards. He turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a solar system for his family house to reduce the use of electricity and get hot water. He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
