Raed is a 39-year-old married man and a father to one son. He lives in Jabalia refugee camp where there are few chances of jobs.

Raed wants to start his new project as a taxi driver and he wants to have his own taxi to meet the increasing demand of customer requests. Raed has some money but not enough to purchase the taxi, so he is requesting a loan from FATEN to purchase the taxi. Taking this loan will allow Raed to own the taxi and take internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
