Ahmad is 24 years old, and a single man from Deir el Balah. His father works as an employee in the public sector and gets a low income. This is the only source of income for the family.

Ahmad is still a student in the university. He requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ahmad to buy a new laptop for his studies. He needs the laptop, because the electricity is not always available in his area. Electricity comes for only a few hours in the day. Having a laptop will help Ahmad at the times when there is no electricity, because it is rechargeable. This will help him to complete his work and achieve good marks.
