Mahmoud is a 59-year-old man who is married and has one son and four daughters. His son and one of his daughters are employed with decent salaries.
Mahmoud works as sweets distributor and he wants to purchase more sweets, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $1,500 from FATEN.
When Mahmoud gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to purchase more sweets to distribute and increase his income in order to have better life conditions.
