Mohammad is a 32-year-old man, the father of one son. He is a taxi driver with a low income. He decided to increase his income by purchasing the taxi he drives. As his own boss, he can work freely, taking on extra hours and additional internal and external requests. He needs to take a loan from FATEN to supplement the money he has in order to pay for the taxi. Getting this loan will allow Mohammad to work independently, enabling him to work extra hours and therefore to increase his income and provide his family with better living conditions. Mohammad is photographed in the picture.
