Mohammad is a 31-year-old single young man. He is employed, but the salary he gets isn't enough to cover all his daily needs.
To improve his income, Mohammad opened a store to sell shoes five years ago. It is located in a good movement area and is distinguished from others in selling shoes of high quality. This makes Mohammad's project a profitable one, but he also needs more support to continue and cover the costs.
Mohammad is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of summer shoes. This loan will offer to Mohammad a wide new collection of summer shoes, so he can compete with others and satisfy his customers. This will lead to increased sales and improve Mohammad's income.
