Awadallah is a 29-year-old man from Jenin. He got married a couple of years ago. Awadallah had to borrow money from friends to pay for his wedding expenses because he is a school teacher with a relatively low income. Therefore, he came to FATEN to take a $2,000 dollar loan to repay his debts.
Awadallah is thinking of starting a business to guarantee a better future for his family in Ramallah and is looking forward to work in the Ministry of Higher Education.
In the picture above, Awadallah apears in the FATEN office.
