Mostafa is a fifty-eight-year-old man, he is married and a father of three sons and two daughters.
For the past twenty years, Mostafa has been making and selling bedroom furniture, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs and the project's costs.
Mostafa is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing bulk quantities of wood which is the only raw material he uses to make furniture. This will give Mostafa the wood he needs to continue his work and take more requests from customers. As a result, he will increase sales and improve the family's income.
