Abdullah is a 30-year-old young man who is married with three sons. He is an office employee with a decent salary. In addition, he has a store for selling general goods such as home items, beauty products and groceries. He is looking to improve his store and increase his sales by purchasing more collections of these goods, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay. So he needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Abdullah gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to purchase more of these goods and have more collections for sale. This will increase his sales and increase his income, enabling him to live in better conditions with his family. Abdullah is photographed in his store.
