Maher, who appears in the picture, is a 30-year-old young man. He is a worker in an aluminum workshop and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and medical expenses.
Maher is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him pay his daughter's medical expenses. She is suffering from a disease in her ear. This will improve Maher's daughter's health so she gets better and will enable her to live in normal conditions with the family.
