Mohammad, who is a 37-year-old man, is the father of two sons and two daughters. He is a bulldozer driver with a decent salary, but he is looking at the future of having his own bulldozer. Mohammad wants to improve the quality of his work by purchasing a huge digging piece for the bulldozer he drives, but he doesn't have enough money to pay, so he needs to take a loan from FATEN. Getting this loan will help Mohammad to improve his working conditions and allow him to complete the work required in less time and with higher quality. That will allow Mohammad to work more and increase his income to offer his family better living conditions. Mohammad is photographed in this picture.
