Mohammad is a 35-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and one daughter, all of whom are school students.
For the past 8 years, Mohammad has been operating a vehicle repairs workshop. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but it is not enough to cover the family's cost of living.
Mohammad is requesting a loan of 2,000 US dollars (USD) from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new vehicle repair kit. This will improve Mohammad's work quality and increase demand from his customers to repair their vehicles, which will will increase his income and offer him better living conditions.
