Mohammad is an 18-year-old single man from Qalqilia. His father is a worker with a very low wage and also owns a workshop for repairing electrical home appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. Most times, Mohammad helps his father in his small workshop. The family's house needs some maintenance to improve their living conditions.

Mohammad took a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to share some of his family's costs of repairing the house, such as painting and installing new windows. This loan will help Mohammad to improve the conditions of his family's home, so they can enjoy living in a suitable home. Mohammad is pictured in the family's house.
