Hussam, who is a 33-year-old young man, is married with three sons and one daughter. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs, so to improve and increase his income, he works part time as an employee in a local services company. He delivers the applications to companies and houses by driving a motorcycle. He wants to improve his work by purchasing a new motorcycle, so that he can work extra hours and increase his income.

Hussam is requesting a loan of 1,000 USD from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing the new motorcycle. This will improve Hussam's work and increase the family's income. Hussam is photographed in the picture.
