For the past two years, Mahran has been operating a workshop for fixing washing machines for customers, which has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover all the costs.
Mahran is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new repair kit that will be used to fix washing machines; it will also purchase a number of washing machine spare parts and engines. This will give Mahran the necessary kit and tools to continue his work, which will improve the family's income positively, especially since it is the only source of income to them.
