Hazem, who appears in this photos, is a 21-year-old single man from Rafah city in Palestine. He works in a small workshop in the city and gets a low income, which is not enough to cover his needs. He will get married soon and is preparing his new home.

Hazem has taken a Murabaha loan (explained below) with Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN). This loan will help him buy a solar system for heating water with sun power. This is very necessary for his home and will save electricity costs.

This loan will help Hazem complete his home and get married as soon as possible.
