Mohammad is a 33-year-old young man. He is married and has five sons and three daughters. He is a taxi driver. This taxi business is the only source of income for his family.
Mohammad wants to purchase a new engine for the taxi he owns and drives in order to increase the taxi's efficiency, but the amount of money he has isn't enough, so he needs to take a loan in the amount of $1,500 from FATEN. When Mohammad gets the loan, he will be able to purchase a new engine for his taxi. This will enable him to work extra hours and increase his income and enable him to provide better living conditions to his family.
