Mwaffaq is a 19-year-old young man. He has his own project, which is a store for clothing sales that is located in a good area and is the only source of income for him. Mwaffaq wants to prepare for the coming winter season by purchasing new collection of winter clothes. He has some money but it is not enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $2,500 from FATEN. When Mwaffaq gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to prepare for the coming winter season by purchasing the new collection to sell, increase his income and live in better conditions. Mwaffaq is photographed in his store.
