Mostafa is a 48 year-old man. He is married and a father of eight sons. One of them is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Mostafa is a taxi driver with low income. He wants to make necessary repairs to his taxi, such as changing the engine, changing the tires, etc. He needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN to pay for these expenses. Repairing the taxi will affect his work positively and will allow him to work extra hours and take more internal and external requests. That will enable Mostafa to create better living conditions for his family. Mostafa is photographed next to his taxi.
