Mohammad S. is a young man from Bethlehem region. He lives with his parents and shares household expenses with his father. Mohammad is a cook at the community center in Bethlehem. Mohammed's father is a taxi driver in the city. Since both have limited incomes, it wasn't easy to buy furniture without taking a $3000 loan from FATEN.

Mohammad tries to save as much as possible from his decent income, but the difficult situation in Bethlehem made it harder for Mohammed to help his father without taking the loan.

In the picture, Mohammed sits in the FATEN office while receiving his loan.
