Bajes is 47 years old. He works in a public institution. He lives with his wife and five children in Gaza in Sheikh Radwan, a district of Gaza City located nearly 3 kilometers northwest of the city center. It borders al-Shati camp to the southwest, Rimal to the south, and Jabalia to the east.

Bajes wants to make one room in his house better, so he is asking Ryada for this loan to paint the bathroom and repair it. This will help him to take a step forward, because he has a shortage of money. He is very grateful to everyone who helps him.
