Abdullah is a 19-year-old, single man. For the past two years, Abdullah has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him. But also it needs more support to cover the cost, from time to time.
Abdullah is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's reliable capacity to work extra hours. It will enable Abdullah to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve Abdullah's income positively.
