Ahmad is a 35-year-old married man from Gaza city. He lives with his wife and six young kids. Ahmad works as an employee in the public sector. He gets a very low wage which is not enough to cover all the family needs. Ahmad has an illness in his lungs, and this sickness prevents him from going to work and doing his daily activities.
Ahmad requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to pay the costs of the surgery and medical examinations. By taking out this loan, Ahmad's health conditions will be better and he will go back to work.
