Montaser is a 40-year-old man who is married and has one son and two daughters. He is a school teacher with a decent salary.
Montaser has a project of raising poultry and he wants to purchase new feeding and drinking equipment, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN.
When Montaser gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to pay for purchasing new feeding and drinking equipment for the poultry he is raising. In this way, he will improve his project and increase his income to provide better life conditions for the family. Montaser is photographed in a FATEN branch.
