A loan of $700 helped to repair his taxi.


Ayob's story

Ayob is a 37-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and one daughter. He lives with his family in Jabalia, in modest living conditions. Ayob is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all his family's needs.

For the past three years, Ayob has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable business and a second source of income to the family.

Ayob is requesting a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to cover the costs of repairing the taxi he drives, such as installing new wheels and painting the body. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Ayob to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income. Ayob is photographed next to his taxi.
