AbdelQader is an 18-year-old young, single man. For 2 years, he has had a project leasing chairs and tables for occasions such as weddings. AbdelQader wants to increase the number of chairs and tables he has in order to expand his project and satisfy his customers' needs, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay and cover all these purchases. So he needs to take a loan from FATEN. Getting this loan will enable AbdelQader to purchase an additional number of chairs and tables. That will increase demand on leasing them for his customers' occasions and so increase his income which will offer to him better standards of living. AbdelQader is photographed in the picture next to the chairs he is using for leasing.
