Karam is photographed in his car wash business.
Karam is a single 19 year-old young man. For the past 8 months he has been operating a car wash located next to the main street where there is good traffic. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him.

Karam is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing car accessories and to make some improvements to the car wash by expanding its space. This will attract more customers and increase the laundry's capacity to wash more cars. This will increase his income.
