Azmi is a 53-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and one daughter.
For the past three years, Azmi has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family, but not enough to cover the costs. Azmi is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, sugar, milk, and canned food. This will increase sales and increase Azmi's income. That will enable him to offer to his family better living conditions.
