Fareed is a 46-year-old man. He is the married father of two sons and two daughters.
For the past six years, Fareed has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family. However, the job requires money to cover a variety of costs from time to time.
Fareed is requesting a 1000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of insuring and licensing the taxi he drives. This will allow the taxi to move from one area to another legally and enable Fareed to take additional internal and external requests and work extra hours, which will improve his family's income.
