Ra'fat is a 23-year-old young man. He is married with two daughters. He wants to improve his situation and provide to his family better living conditions by increasing his income.
Ra'fat wants to purchase some necessary home appliances such as a stove, refrigerator, etc., and to improve his income, he wants also to prepare for opening a cafe that serves hot drinks such as tea, coffee, etc. Ra'fat hasn't enough money to pay for all these expenses, so he needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Ra'fat gets the loan, he will improve his family's living conditions by purchasing the necessary home appliances, and improve his situation by opening the cafe for better income. This will help Ra'fat to live with his family in better life conditions. Ra'fat is photographed in the picture.
