Nidal is a 49-year-old man. He is married with eight sons. For the past 13 years, Nidal has run a cafe which offers hot drinks like tea and coffee, in addition to a pool table to entertain customers. This has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover all the family's costs.
Nidal is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing new chairs and tables and another pool table in order to improve the cafe's condition. This will be more attractive to customers and therefore increase sales and improve the family's income.
