Shadi, who appears in the picture, is a 24-year-old young man. He is married and has no children yet. Shadi is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the costs.

Shadi has been building a house, but due to a money shortage, the building process has been stopped for awhile. So Shadi is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to continue his home's building by purchasing necessary construction supplies such as cement and bricks. Taking this loan will enable Shadi to continue building his house, so he and his wife can enjoy living in their new house soon.
