Rami is a 22-year-old single man. He is employed and earns a small salary which is not enough to cover his needs. For the past two years, he has also had an aluminum workshop; he purchases aluminum and works it into multiple forms of windows frames and cabinets and other items upon the request of clients. It has been a profitable venture, but it needs more support to cover its costs. Rami is requesting a loan from FATEN to purchase more aluminum to continue his work. This will enable him to meet his customers’ demands, which will increase his sales and boost his income. Rami is photographed inside his workshop.
