Ammar is employed and receives a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs and costs. He wants to replace the old refrigerator he has at home with a new one, especially now that Summer season is around the corner. The family wants to get a suitable cooling refrigerator to preserve food for a long time.
Ammar is requesting a loan to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new refrigerator for his home. This loan will afford Ammar and his family a suitable refrigerator to preserve food in healthy conditions as well as the opportunity to drink cool water during the summer season without any additional costs that could strain the family financially.
