Isam is a 49-year-old man. He is married and has two sons and one daughter. He has his own business, which is making furniture. His furniture has high customer demand because of the high-quality. Isam wants to purchase wood that is essential in his work in large quantity, but the amount of money he has isn't enough, so he needs to take a loan of amount $3,000 from FATEN for this purpose.
When Isam gets the loan, he will be able to purchase large quantities of wood. This will enable him to continue his work of making high-quality furniture and so have a better collection that will enable him to compete with others and sell more and increase his income. That will enable him to provide better life conditions to his family.
