Ahmad is a 26-year-old young man, who is married and has one son. Ahmad owns a barber shop and he wants to purchase a barber kit in order to improve his service for his customers. Ahmad has not enough money to pay for a new barber kit, so he needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Ahmad takes the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will pay easily to purchase a new barber kit and serve his customers better and so work extra to increase his income.
