Ahed is a 41-year-old man who is married and a father to one son. For the past two years, Ahed has been operating a barber shop. This has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover his family's cost of living.
Ahed is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new barber kit including different types of hairbrushes, hair and face creams, and hair dryers. This will improve Ahed's work quality and increase the demand from his customers. This will increase his income and offer to him better living conditions. Ahed is photographed in the barber shop.
