Mohammad, who is a 22-year-old single man, has a store for selling electrical goods that provides his only source of income. Mohammad wants to expand his sales by purchasing some types of electrical goods that his customers demand, but that are not available in his store. He wants to fulfill these requests by combining some money he has with a loan from FATEN to purchase the products. Taking this loan will enable Mohammad to provide essential requested goods to his customers. This will satisfy his customers and increase his sales, allowing him to live in better conditions and secure a better future. Mohammad is photographed in his store.
