Mohammad is a 25-year-old single man. For the past three years, he has operated a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project, but not profitable enough.

Mohammad is requesting a US$1,500 youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of buying stocks of basic groceries that customers often request, such as rice, sugar and milk. It will also help him to make improvements to the store, such installing additional shelves and painting. This will increase sales and Mohammad's income.
