Adel is a 44-year-old man. He is married and a father of five sons and three daughters. His elder son is a worker and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover his needs.
Adel has had a barber shop, which has been a profitable project, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the costs of work.
Adel is requesting a US $3,000 loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new barber kit, which includes hair and body creams, hair dryers, hair brushes, chairs and mirrors, and to add some new decorations. This will improve the quality of Adel's work and improve the condition of the barber shop, which will help to increase Adel's income.
