Mohammad is a taxi driver. He takes internal requests and has a good reputation among customers. His business has been profitable, but as it is the only source of income to the family, more support is needed to cover the costs and the family's needs.
Mohammad has completed construction of his house, and now he wants to finish it by installing tiles and windows. He is requesting a loan of 2,000 USD from Faten for this purpose.
Taking this loan will offer Mohammad and his family suitable home conditions so they can enjoy living in their new house. Mohammad is photographed in the location of his new house.
