Fetah's story

Fetah has been photographed with his cat, who he adores dearly. In the background, the rundown building you see, it’s his so called ‘house’. He has been living on his own for a very long time, since after his divorce. His neighbor, who considers him a father figure, has been taking care of him cleaning up his place, cooking and doing the laundry for him, all at no expense. Fetah has been working as a loader forever, even today at his age. Here is what he said to the loan officer when he took the photograph of him: “By petting my cat, all my exhaustion goes way. I love her; I share my food with her. She sleeps right by my foot bed and waits at the porch for me to return home.”

Fetah wants to repair the ceiling of his house because the conditions where he and his cat live are very unhealthy. In addition, he wants to buy a washer to release his neighbor from this chore, according to him.
