Tahseen, age 25, is employed in a local company in his community and makes a very low wage. This income is barely enough to cover the basic family needs. He lives with his wife and their four sons in Rafah.

Tahseen requested a Murabaha loan from FATEN in order to buy a water purification machine for his home. The loan will allow Tahseen to provide clean water for his family. He is glad that he and his wife will have access to clean water, but is even happier to be able to offer this benefit to his children.

In the future, he would like to improve his family's living conditions and be able to afford the items required to meet their basic needs.
