Hanna is the father of one daughter. He owns an olive wood workshop in Bethlehem where he produces items for tourists, such as crosses, domes of the rock, etc.

Due to the financial crisis, Hanna has had some financial trouble as the shops he sells his items to have not been able to pay for their purchases from him. Hanna has had to borrow money from relatives to keep running the workshop.

Hanna came to FATEN and asked for a $1500 loan. He will use the loan to pay his daughter's school tuition fees and to repay his relatives.

Hanna appears in the picture above in FATEN's office in Bethlehem.
