Ameen is a 34-year-old man. He is married and has four sons. Ameen owns a taxi that he drives inside the city on one of the public transportation lines, as well as transporting clients upon request. Such a job doesn't help Ameen make the money he needs to cover both family and car expenses. Therefore, he had to take out a loan from FATEN to cover the insurance and licencing fees. With the help of the loan, Ameen (who is photographed next to his car) will be able to cover the fees without exhausting himself financially.
