Rezeq is photographed next to his taxi. He is a 41-year-old man, married and a father with five sons. He has been a taxi driver for 7 years. It has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover all life's needs.
Rezeq is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the expenses needed to make necessary repairs to the taxi such as: changing the tires, changing the floor mats, changing the engine. This will increase the taxi's efficiency and enable Rezeq to work extra hours and take more internal and external requests which will increase the family income.
