Muhammad is a young man from Qalqilia- Palestine. He is married and a father of two sons. Muhammad runs an electronics store selling irons, hair dryers, mixers, etc.

Muhammad wants to have a better income as the current one is barely enough, so he took out a loan from FATEN to redecorate his store so as to have the items exhibited in a better arrangement and attract more customers.

Muhammad is photographed in FATEN's branch in Qalqilia.
