Mohammad is a 43-year-old married man, a father to four sons and two daughters.
Mohammad lives in Jenin city with his family in modest living conditions. For the past three years, Mohammad has had a cafe. He has many loyal customers and the cafe is located in a good area, which makes his project a profitable one. It is the only source of income for the family, but also needs more support to cover some necessary costs.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of improving his cafe and purchasing new equipment such as coffee and tea cups, trays and an electric water heater.
This will allow Mohammad to expand the scope of his work, improve his business, and increase the family's income. Mohammad is photographed in his cafe.
