Saqer is a 35 year old man who he is a father with one son and three daughters. For the past 15 years, Saqer has had a grocery store selling groceries and also fruits and vegetables to customers. It has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover the family's costs and needs.
Saqer is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a stock of groceries and bulk of fruits and vegetables that customers often request. This will offer to Saqer better products to resell and this will lead to increase sales and improve the family's income. Saqer is photographed in the grocery store he owns.
