Tareq, a 37-year-old man, is a painter. He appears in the photo while he is painting. He is married and a father of one son and three daughters with ages between 1 and 5 years old. The income he gets is fair and enough to cover the family's needs, but his project needs more support to cover some of its costs. Tareq is requesting a loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a collection of paints and some other required items such as special paint brushes and tools. Taking this loan will increase the quality of work and satisfy clients. This will increase Tareq's good reputation among customers, increase demand, and improve his income.
