Ahmad is a thirty-four-year-old man, he is married and a father of two sons and two daughters. He has been a taxi driver for the past three years, and this is the only source of income to the family.
Ahmad wants to make some repairs to his taxi so it will become more efficient on the road. Therefore he is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of repairing and improving the taxi's condition such as: painting, changing lights and mirrors, changing tires. This will increase the taxi's efficiency and enable Ahmad to work extra hours and improve the family's income.
