Hisham is a 33-year-old married man and father to one son and three daughters.

For the past two years, he has been driving a taxi, which is the only source of income for the family. He needs more support to cover the family's needs and costs.

Hisham is requesting a $1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of repairing the taxi, such as painting, and changing the engine and wheels. This will increase the taxi's capacity to travel from one place to another and enable Hisham to work extra hours and take more internal requests, which will help to improve the family's income.
