Mahmoud, photographed next to his taxi, is a 43-year-old married man with five sons between two and ten years old.
For the past seven years, Mahmoud has owned and operated a taxi service, and he has a good reputation among customers. The project is a profitable one, but he needs more support to cover the costs of operation.
Mahmoud is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of painting the taxi and making some necessary repairs. This will increase the taxi's efficiency and improve the family's income.
