Emad is a 35-year-old young man. He is married and a father to two daughters.
For the past 12 years, Emad has been repairing vehicles and selling spare parts, which has been a profitable project, but he needs more support to cover the family's needs.
Emad is requesting a loan of 1,000 US dollars (USD) from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new repairing kit and more vehicle spare parts. This will improve the quality of his work and increase the size of his work, which will improve the family's income. Emad is photographed in his workshop.
