Saeed is a 35-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and two daughters, ages between two to five years. He is employed, but the salary he gets isn't enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past four years, Saeed has also been selling groceries, which has been a profitable project, but he also needs more support to cover the costs.
Saeed is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a selection of groceries that customers often request that are not currently in stock. He also needs help to cover the costs of buying a refrigerator for keeping frozen food. This will improve the store's condition, increase sales and improve the family's income.
