Hussam is a 21-year-old single man. He has a scarfs and cosmetics shop which is his only source of income. Hussam wants to purchase a new collection of scarfs for the winter season and a better collection of cosmetics to resell and improve his income, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of 1,000 USD from FATEN. When Hussam gets the loan, he will pay to purchase a new collection of scarfs and cosmetics. Then he will have more items to compete and increase his sales and income to live in better conditions. Hussam is photographed in his shop.
