Adnan is a hard worker, who learned this business at the beginning from his father who registered him in a specialized college to develop his knowledge.

Adnan lives and works with his family in a Palestinian camp, which is an obstacle to expand his business since he is limited with the camp citizens. Although he has low income because of the limited access to the camp and narrow labor market, he was capable of providing one of his children a university degree in Math, and is working hard to provide the other the best education ever too. Adnan believes that education is the best weapon against poverty, that's why he is working hard to make sure his children will benefit from a brighter shining future.
