Ashraf is a 37-year-old married man. He has three sons, all of whom are students. Ashraf is employed, but does not earn enough to cover all the family's needs and education expenses. Ashraf is requesting a $1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new refrigerator for his house to replace the old one, which is not valid for use. This will improve the family's living conditions. Ashraf is pictured in the photograph.
