Fareed is a young man from Bethlehem. He borrowed money from friends to buy a taxi car three years ago and has worked as a taxi driver since then. The returns of the taxi are very good.
Fareed took a $3,000 loan because his car broke and needed maintenance. He couldn't work for months and couldn't repay his friends, so he came to FATEN to fix the car and be able to repay his friends.
Fareed is a hard-working young man trying to distinguish himself with punctuality and good driving. Fareed appears here next to his car
