Ayman is a 31-year-old, married man from a small village called Alyamon near Jenin city. He lives in a humble house with his wife and three children. Ayman works as a farmer on the family land. They plant olive trees. This gives Ayman a fair income but not enough for his family's needs.

Ayman took out a loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ayman to pay the costs of completing the family home and buy the needed construction materials.
