Yaseen who is a 27-year-old young man, is married with no children yet. He is a school teacher with a decent salary that is not sufficient to pay all the daily life expenses throughout the month. Yaseen lives with his wife in an old house and wants to make some necessary repairs to it such as: painting, changing windows and doors, etc. He also wants to purchase some necessary home furniture such as: living room seats, kitchen table, etc., instead of his old ones, so he needs to take a loan from FATEN. When Yaseen gets the loan, he will be able to pay for doing all the necessary repairs to his house and to purchase new home furniture, which will enable Yaseen to live with his wife in better and more comfortable house conditions. Yaseen is photographed in the picture.
