Mohammad is a 29-year-old single young man. For the past year and a half, Mohammad has had a small lab to manufacture hair products to sell to cosmetics stores in the area where he lives. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but it also needs more support to cover the costs.

Mohammad is requesting a loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing necessary raw materials to manufacture hair products such as hair creams. Taking this loan will enable Mohammad to continue his work and manufacture more quantities of hair products, which will increase sales and increase Mohammad's income.
