Hisham is a single, young, Palestinian man. He is pictured beside his taxi in the photo.

For the past five years, Hisham has been a taxi driver. He was unable to complete his studies because he faces very difficult living conditions and needs to help support himself and his family with his income.

Hisham's taxi needs a new engine and some maintenance work, but he cannot afford to make such improvements. As a result, Hisham is seeking a $1,500 loan from FATEN to help him cover the maintenance expenses and the cost of a new engine for his taxi.
