Shadi is a 34-year-old man. He is married and the father of one son and three daughters. He is employed, but the salary he earns isn't enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past three years, Shadi has also been selling groceries. It has been a profitable project, but he needs more support to cover the costs of his business.
Shadi is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing necessary groceries currently missing from his inventory, such as canned food, milk, and rice. This loan will allow Shadi to offer a wide selection of groceries that his customers usually request and buy, which will increase his sales and improve the family's income.
