Anwar is a 32-year-old young man. He is married and has two daughters.

For the past three years, Anwar has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family.

Anwar is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of licensing and purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Anwar to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively and enable them to have better living conditions.
