Muhamet is an Egyptian and he is on disability income. Kindly note that there are a high number of ethnic Egyptians who, due to their totally unhealthy living conditions in the past and some in the present, have been experiencing health problems; Muhamet is one of them unfortunately. His wife though works in a dental laboratory as a cleaner, and she brings home an income.

Muhamet has been photographed at their house where the couple lives, including their children, 17 and 14, who are attending public school.

Muhamet is seeking your attention to help him financially so that he does some home repairs with this loan before the cold winters kicks in. “ It is leaking everywhere and the wind and cold comes in,” is what Muhamet said.
