Ali is a Palestinian young man, who is married and has two sons and one daughter. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. He also has a project of raising birds for sale.
Ali has a store for selling air conditioners and spare parts. He wants to purchase more air conditioners and spare parts, as he prepares to open a second branch of his store. He would like to have a variety of items for sale in order to increase his income. He does not have enough to pay for the additional items, so he needs to complete the amount with a loan of $3,000 from FATEN.
When Ali gets the loan, he will have a better collection and will have the ability to open the second store branch. In this way, he will increase his income and improve his family life. Ali is photographed next to his store.
