Mohammad is photographed next to his taxi. Mohammad is a 36-year-old man. He is married and is father to three sons and one daughter. For the past ten months, Mohammad has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and is the only source of income for his family.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of painting and repairing the taxi he drives such as installing new mirrors and wheels. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Mohammad to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
Mohammad's ambition is to buy a new and larger taxi in the future.
