Samer is a 30-year-old young man. He is married and a father to one son. His wife is a housewife and he is a worker across the border who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the costs.
Samer has finished building their house and now he wants to complete the finishings of it, so he is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of installing tiles, windows and doors.
Taking this loan will create suitable living conditions for Samer and his family and enable them to enjoy living in their new house.
