Haitham is a 22-year-old single man from a village called Ellar near Tulkarem city. Haithem lives in an old house with his family. He works as a construction worker in the city and gets a low income. This income is not enough to cover all the necessary needs. Haitham would like to build a new home with better living conditions, but he does not have enough money.

Haitham took a loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to pay the costs of construction materials like cement and iron for his new home. By taking this loan, Haitham will be able to start building his new home and live in it as soon as possible.
