Mohmmad is a young single man; he owns a shop in a very busy location in the old city of Bethlehem.

Mohammad started with vegetable kiosk (since his father also owns a vegetable shop) when he was very young and from the income of this kiosk, a year ago he started a partnership with one of his friends in this shop where he sells cosmetics, perfumes, accessories, scarves.....the shop is managed by both Mohammad and his friend, and Mohammad still has his vegetable kiosk next to this shop.

Mohammad is a very ambitious young man. He hopes that he will be able to have good source of income from these two businesses and ultimately will start his own family.

Mohammad requested 2000 USD from Faten to buy some products for his shop as it is Eid Al-Adha next week and the demand for his products became greater. Mohammad appears in the picture at his business.
