Mohammad is a 31-year-old man. He is married with no children yet. Though he is employed, he gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. Mohammad has also been working in agriculture, planting olives and almond trees and selling the crop. That has been a profitable project, but it also needs more support from time to time. Mohammad is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new water tank and solar panels for his house. This will offer Mohammad and his family clean, healthy water and create better living conditions for them. Mohammad is photographed next to the water tank and solar panels.
