Ahmad is a young Palestinian man, age 27, who is married with two children.

Ahmad owns a barber shop where he cuts hair, shaves beards and sells creams. The salon is the only source of income for the family.

Ahmad’s shop needs new decor, especially the door, since the people outside can see the customers inside. Also, during winter the wind comes through the door as it is not well fitted which makes many customers complain.

Ahmad requested 1,500 USD to do these renovations. He appears in the photo at his salon with one of his customers.
