Abdulrahman, pictured here in his shop, is a 30-year-old single young man. For the past four years he has had a barber shop, which is located on a main street where there is good foot traffic. The shop has been a profitable project, but Abdulrahman still needs more income to cover his and the shop's expenses.

Abdulrahman is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing new barbering equipment, installing shelves and painting his shop. The barbering supplies will up the quality and capacity of Abdulrahman's work and improve the shop's condition.
