Basem is a 22-year-old single man. For the past three years, Basem has been working in repairing used vehicle radios in order to sell them again to customers. The workshop he has is distinguished by its location, where there is a good customer movement. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but also it needs more support to cover the costs from time to time.

Basem is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing used vehicle radios in bulk to repair and sell to clients. This type of project has a good demand from customers in the area where he lives, and the price of these used radios is affordable and acceptable to his customers.

Taking this loan will meet the demand of customers and increase the sales and improve Basem's income, which will ensure to him a brighter future.
