Eyad is a Palestinian young man. He is married and a father to two sons. He is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For several years, Eyad has also been a taxi driver, which has been a profitable project, but he needs more support to cover the costs.
Eyad is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of repairing the engine of his taxi and improving its condition. Taking this loan will help to increase the taxi's efficiency and its ability to work extra hours and move long distances, which will enable Eyad to take more requests and improve the family's income.
