Abdullah is a 23-year-old young single man. Five years ago he opened a grocery store located in a vital area next to a main street. It is a profitable project and the only source of income for him, but not enough to cover all his needs.
Abdullah wants to purchase necessary groceries for sale and wants to cover the expenses for repairing the store such as painting, installing additional shelves and lights, so he is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing more groceries and for improving the store's condition. This will increase sales and improve Abdullah's income. Abdullah is photographed in his grocery store.
