Ahmad's wife is a housewife, while he is employed and earns a low salary. His salary is the only source of income to the family and is not enough to cover all their needs.
Ahmad lives in a clean and calm area, and his house is distinguished by being clean and tidy. Ahmad wants to provide comfortable and necessary furniture for his family, so he is requesting a USD 1,000 loan from FATEN to complete the price of purchasing dining room furniture. Taking this loan will offer to Ahmad and his family comfortable furniture so they can enjoy living in their house.
