Mahmoud, a 40-year-old married father of four sons and two daughters, has a stone-cutting facility as the main source of family income, supplemented by his work in agriculture. Mahmoud wants to prepare for the coming agricultural season by purchasing seedlings, and so is requesting a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. The loan, to be repaid on a monthly basis, will enable him to prepare well for the coming season, thereby leading to increased crop yields and income improvement that will benefit his family's living conditions.
