Mohammad is a 54-year-old man, and he is married with four sons and three daughters. He is a school teacher with a decent salary.
Mohammad has his own project which is a grocery store. He wants to purchase more groceries so he can have a better collection for sale to increase his income, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $1,300 from FATEN. When Mohammad gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will pay to purchase more groceries and have a variety of products and groceries for sale. He will then have the ability to compete and sell more, in order to have a better income and provide better life conditions for his family.
