Mohammad is a 45-year-old married man, a father with three sons and one daughter.
For the past two years, Mohammad has been making and selling different types of sweets, which has been a profitable project, while also not really generating enough income to cover the family's expenses.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing necessary but missing ingredients that are basic to making sweets such as: milk, butter, flour, sugar, and eggs. Taking out this loan will allow Mohammad to continue his work and compete with others well and have on hand the desired amount of sweets that customers often request. This will increase sales and improve Mohammad's income.
