Tareq is a 49-year-old married man. He and his wife have four sons and one daughter.

He is an accountant for a local company and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's living expenses. Tareq is building a new house for the family. (Tareq is pictured at the location of his new house.)

To complete construction of the house, he is requesting a loan in the amount of $1,000 from FATEN. Specifically, he would use the loan proceeds to cover the costs of purchasing necessary construction supplies such as bricks and cement. More generally, Tareq expects the loan proceeds to accelerate the house's construction and stability for the family in the near future.
