Shadi is a 21-year-old single young man. For 1 1/2 years, he has had a bakery. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but he also needs more support to cover its costs and his needs.

Shadi is requesting a youth loan of 3,000 US dollars (USD) from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new vehicle. He will use it for distributing bakery products to groceries and customers' homes. This will improve Shadi's work quality and increase the demand from his customers to request more bakery products. This will increase his income and offer him better living conditions.
