Eyad is a 41-year-old man, and he is married with six sons and two daughters. For the past 4 years, Eyad has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project but not enough to cover all the family's costs.
Eyad is requesting a $3,000 US dollar (USD) loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of licensing and insuring his taxi. This will make the taxi legal and enable Eyad to work extra hours and take more internal and external requests. This will improve the family's income.
