Ahmad is a Palestinian young man who is married and has two sons. He lives in Beddya village near Nablus city in Palestine. Ahmad has a carpentry workshop and he wants to improve the quality of the parts he manufactures like parts of home furniture. But Ahmad does not have enough money to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN.
