Mohammad is a 26-year-old single man from Rafah city. He lives with his family in a small simple house in the city.

Mohammad works as an employee in the public sector, where he gets a low income; this is the only source of income to the family. Mohammad would like to improve the family living conditions and buy all the needed stuff.

Mohammad took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN to help him to buy a water purification machine for his home. By taking this loan, Mohammad will be able to provide pure water for his family, since the water in his area is not clean.
