Muhammad is a 28-year-old husband and father of one daughter and two sons. He is a bakery worker and has a small field of olive trees, which he takes care of with the help of his wife.

Working in the bakery brings in only a small wage for Muhammad so that he had to find another source of income. Muhammad, who appears in the picture, took out $1,000 from FATEN to purchase fertilizers and fix the field's sprinklers so as to have a better crop and sell better and also be able to make olive oil to use in his house instead of buying it as it is very expensive.
