Ahmad, 43 years old, is married and has three sons and two daughters. He has a store where he sells shoes, and it has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover all of life's costs.
Ahmad is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of shoes upon customers' request. This will enable Ahmad to compete well with others, to increase sales and to improve the family's income. Ahmad is photographed in his store.
