Mostafa is a 20-year-old young man. He is single and has an internet café, which he established three years ago. It is his only source of income.
Mostafa wants to purchase computer accessories to resell and wants to pay for maintenance for the current computers in the cafe to become more efficient. He needs to take a loan of $1,000 from FATEN to add to the amount of money he already has.
When Mostafa gets the loan, he will be able to pay for purchasing computer accessories, so he will have a better collection for sale. The customers’ requests for these accessories are high, and so he will be able to pay for the needed maintenance for the available computers which are used by customers in the café. This will make a positive difference in his internet café, increase his income, and allow him to have better life conditions.
