Khaled is a 36-year-old married man and a father to two sons and two daughters. He lives with his family in Ya'abad Village near Jenin, which is famous for its crops. Khaled is employed and has a small salary, which is not really enough to cover all the family's needs.
For the past three years, Khaled has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and a helpful source of income for the family. Khaled is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. This will enable Khaled to travel freely from one area to another and to take additional internal and external requests, which will positively improve the family's income.
