Luai M. is from Tulkarem city in the northern part of Palestine. He is married and is the father of three sons.

Luai inherited a stall in the old city from his father, where he sells basic kitchen stuff and food. He also distributes a certain brand of biscuits to shops in the old city.

Luai came to FATEN and took a $2,000 loan in order to purchase a large amount of the goods he sells so as to increase his returns. This store is the only source of income for the family and the loan will help him improve his financial situation.

Luai appears in the photo in FATEN's office. He didn't want to be photographed in the old market for social reasons.
