Zuhair is a 45-year-old man. He is married and a father to four sons and two daughters.
For the past 10 years, Zuhair has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family, but it needs more support to cover the cost.
Zuhair is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of insuring and licensing the taxi he drives. This will enable the taxi legally to move from one area to another and enable Zuhair to work extra hours and to take additional internal and external requests. All of this will improve the family's income and lead to better living conditions.
