Yousef is a 45-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and one daughter; all of them are school students and his wife is a housewife.

For the past four years, Yousef has had a grocery store which has been a profitable project, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the costs of work.

Yousef is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new refrigerator, which he will use for preserving food and dairy at his store. This will allow him to expand the scope of his work, improve his business, and increase the family's income.
