Manal is a 30-year-old young woman, married to Fadi and mother of four sons. For the past three years, Manal's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family.
Manal is requesting a USD 1,500 youth loan from FATEN to help her husband buy a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Manal's husband to take additional internal and external requests. That will improve the family's income positively.
