Khaled's story

Khaled is a 19-year-old single man from Nablus. He has his own business which is selling clothes. His business somehow earns a good income but not enough. Khaled is living in a very humble house with his family. He is looking to improve his house by building an additional room, He does not have enough money for this, so he needs a loan of $1,500 USD from FATEN. His separated room will be an improvement and Khaled will live in it and have some much needed privacy. He is pictured in front of his home.
