Abedal-Rahman, who appears in the picture, is a 34-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and two daughters. He is a construction worker who earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past three years, Abedal-Rahman has been working in the construction supplies business, supplying construction workshops with wood and iron. This has been a profitable project, but he needs more support to cover the costs. Abedal-Rahman is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing more construction supplies of wood and iron. This will improve his work quality and increase demand from his customers. This will increase his income and offer to him better living conditions.
